Geocache Description:

Visit Tecolote Treasure details at the DGP

Beautiful 360-degree views on this short mountain hike. The cache is hidden about 200 feet off of a relatively new trail in the Sandia Mountains. Total elevation change is around 200 feet, and the round-trip distance is 2.5 miles.


Park your car at N 35 12.052, W 106 24.320. Bring along $3 to pay the parking fee. A well established trail starts from the northeast corner of the parking lot, marked by a wooden sign.

As you hike up the trail, look to your left at N 35 12.014, W 106 24.125 to see a distinctive landmark. (Please do not go inside it, though.)

When you reach the top of the mesa, there are spectacular views to the east and west.

When you reach a sign post at N 35 11.691, W 106 23.782 about one mile into the hike, you are getting near the cache. It is hidden about 200 feet away from the established trail that you have been on.
