Cerre Grande is located in, and is the highest point in, the Bandelier National Monument west of Los Alamos. The large parking lot for the trailhead is at the junction of Rt. 4 and St. Peters Dome Road, FR 289. The trail is great and a lot of fun, but the sweeping views of the Valles Caldera, from the top are what make this hike a top choice. Not many people get out this far from Sante Fe, so no crowds. This hike was part of our hiking club outing to Sante Fe in early October. Great moderate hike. Even though the trail is not maintained, it’s in good shape.
