To those of you who know Albuquerque well: Where can I camp within and hour drive from Albuquerque?
I'm looking for a mountain campsite where I can camp alone and possibly host some first time campers. Primitive is fine, but a vault toilet may be nice if I have friends with me who are new to camping. I've done some searching and found Cedro Peak Group sites, Fourth of July CG, Tajique CG. Are the forest roads pretty good usually? I don't plan on being there during the monsoon season. I'm hoping most snow will be melted by the end of May.
I'm interested in finding some some good dispersed sites that will be relatively safe. I've seen some comments on a few sites about vehicles being vandalized at some trailheads and it makes me nervous as far as camping. I often hike and camp alone and am an older woman.
My plan is a trip end of May or early June next year. Any suggestions you have or websites I could get more info from will be appreciated.
