This is a tough Sandia Mountains hike that starts at the Embudito Trailhead then follows a social trail called Oso Ridge. It is a good quality trail despite not being on any forest service or USGS map. It tops out on the Crest Trail. We follow that South Sandia Peak and continue on Crest Trail to meet the Embudito Trail which we follow back to the trail head. CK, Jon Blakey, Helen Huntley, SK Lund, and the ever indefatigable Z. Accurate measures are 9.42 miles, 4159 feet of ascent, and 7 hours 39 minutes. It was co-listed with SWEL Meetup.
