A Steep Hike with Breathtaking Views
From the small campus of St. John's College, the Atalaya Mountain Trail starts simply and then rises to a steep and challenging 7-mile hike (round-trip). To take off mileage, commence your hike at the Ponderosa Ridge trailhead. Perched at the top and looking down at the namesake Ponderosa pine trees, you're rewarded with an expansive view (2,000 feet above the city) coupled with the magical skies one comes to expect in the southwest. Rest assured, you will always be guaranteed stellar, breathtaking views of the expansive historic city below.
