BERNALILLO COUNTY, N.M. (KRQE) – The Cibola National Forest & National Grasslands is seeking input on the proposed Sandia Crest Recreation Complex Renovation Project.

The project area is located at the crest of the Sandia Mountains, just over 10,000 feet in elevation. The Sandia Ranger District proposes to improve and reconstruct portions of the Sandia Crest Recreation area to bring the site up to current standards, decrease short- and long-term maintenance needs, and to provide a sustainable recreation site. This proposal does not include the Crest House.
