Geocache Description:

Visit Cienega Stopover details at the DGP

This cache lies about mid-way between Cienega Trail and Canoncito Trail upper junctions with the South Crest Trail. The cache is about 135 feet west of the Crest Trail at a beautiful over look on the ridge line.

You need to take a 1 to 2 hour hike (each way) to reach this cache. Several trails will take you to the area. Hike up one of the following four trails all of the way to the Sandia Mountain ridge line and the South Crest Trail; you may use: Cienega Trail, Pino Trail, Canoncito Trail, or Bart's Trail. Then follow the South Crest Trail along relatively flat terrain until you are within 150 feet of the cache. The cache is hidden under a prominent feature that will probably catch your eye as soon as you go over the ridge. I hope you enjoy this beautiful area of the mountain. Please take plenty of water, sunscreen, and rain gear, etc. More information about the various trails mentioned above can be found at
