60 Short Hikes in the Sandia Foothills book coverThe hiking trails in the Sandia Mountains are one of the greatest assets of Albuquerque, for residents and visitors alike. 60 Short Hikes in the Sandia Foothills by Tamara Massong helps more people take advantage of these beautiful places to walk, most of them hitherto unmapped. It introduces sixty short hikes in the public lands on the eastern edge of the city. Some of the hikes are in the foothills and some are in the lower slopes of the mountains. Most are less than four miles long, and all are easy to access. They range in difficulty from easy to very hard. Included are useful tips for how to reach the trails, where to park, and how to stay safe and avoid trespassing on private property. Each hike also features downloadable digital route data that can be easily used with smartphones or GPS units.
Book will be available for purchase and signature for $19.95.

Tamara Massong has lived in the Southwest since 1998. She is retired from the US Army Corps of Engineers, where she worked as a hydrologist. An avid outdoorswoman, she especially enjoys investigating small streams and tight canyons.
