Change Notice Sent By: Carl Gervais

Original Hike: ABQ Art, History, Architecture: Downtown-Old Town

What Has Changed: The route – still a 4.5 mile hike

More Information: There are a number of variations on this hike. We will not be including Tingley Beach, the courthouse, and some of the murals. We are adding neighborhoods of architectural interest.

Highlights: Stroll through downtown and Old Town Albuquerque to see public art, sculpture, architecture and historic features.

Cautions: Bring your smaller packs–at the Federal Courthouse we will be going through security, and a huge pack is inconvenient.
