Cedro Peak (Elevation 7677 Feet) - Tijeras, New Mexico
|It's nothing to go wild about, but Cedro Peak is there for you ...
Cedro Peak is about 5 miles south of Tijeras and a decent mountain for the views on top.
As for hiking it, one can simply walk on the road that begins just a mile down at the
Cedro Peak Group Campground. The elevation gain is only a few hundred feet. It's far from an interesting hike
and ugly cell towers and a building detract from the peak's beauty. Still, casual hikers might like this mountain and of course,
peak baggers will want to mark it off their checklist.
Directions: From Albuquerque, travel west on Interstate 40 to Exit 175, the Tijeras exit. Travel south on State Highway 337 into the forest.
I don't know the exact mileage, but after about five miles I'd guess, there's sign noting the Cedro Peak Campground.
Turn left, then turn left again at the next sign. At that point, drive up the well-graded dirt road to the campground,
where there's a parking lot just above. From there, the hike is a simple jaunt up the road.
There are trails that meander around, some leading to the peak. Have at it!

Special thanks to my New Mexico atlas for finding the place! :)
