Just north of the Tram.
From the south end of the Sandia Crest parking lot, hike down the Crest Spur Trail for 0.5 mile to its junction with the La Luz Trail. Go left (south) toward the tram, hiking above Echo Canyon. After 10 minutes on the La Luz, the trail veers northeast at an overlook (Domingo Baca). Continue for another 10 minutes to the next canyon (TWA) and descend a steep trail. The trail tunnels through thick brush and trees past Trundle Wall; Alioth is the next large wall. Approach time is approximately one hour.
