Destinations: Sandia Crest, New Mexico

Known best for the 2.7mi tram that climbs to the crest from the base of the Sandia Mountains in New Mexico’s Cibola National Forest, Sandia Crest has another side every motorcyclist should experience — the Sandia Crest Scenic Byway.

Worth the ride: Looking southwest from Sandia Crest.
