Guided Burro Treks

Do something UNIQUELY southwest-

Soon we will be offering burro and brewery hikes around the greater Albuquerque area.

Join your guide and naturalist Shane Weigand on a easy-moderate 2-3 hour trek through the beautiful juniper foothills of Sandia Park, New Mexico. Learn about the ecology and history of the area while a loveable burro carries all our jackets, water, and provides unforgettable outting for friends and family. 

$75 for up to 4 people. $25 per person for each additional person. Light snacks included. Leave the trailhead at 9:00am or 10:00am and return about noon.

After the hike we can enjoy lunch at the Ale Republic, a top notch local brewery located next to the trailhead.

Check back soon or reach out to us at or (505)-554-8594 for more information.
