Sandia Park

As you travel north you'll see the Sandia Mountains and Cibola National Forest, a scenic and recreational paradise full of outdoor activities including bicycling, hiking, horseback riding, climbing and skiing. This beautiful area is home to a diverse collection of animals and plants; and birdwatchers come from around the world to witness the hawk and eagle migrations. From mid November through March three species of Rosy Finch call Sandia Crest home, making the area an ideal destination for bird-watchers. Just outside the community of Sandia Park, along the Sandia Crest National Scenic Byway, you'll find Tinkertown Museum, a collection of one man's life work that includes a handcarved animated miniature western town and a three-ring circus. Follow the Byway also called the "Crest Road", through the beautiful Cibola National Forest. During the drive you'll see incredible vistas and pass through five different life zones.
