The two blue grama grass sculptures along Tramway at the foot of the Sandias signal the entry points to the master planned community of High Desert. Created to take advantage of the area's stunning views and natural beauty, High Desert fits seamlessly along the mountain foothills. What began as an idea has become a unique place that has taken strides to design and build homes that preserve the area, conserve water and create a thriving, sustainable place to live.

High Desert pays attention to the outdoors. Houses are set within the natural environment with minimal impact. An interlaced network of hiking and biking trails connects with the trails of the nearby Cibola National Forest and Sandia Wilderness. With its parks and trails and variety of housing options, High Desert has become one of the more popular and sought after places in Albuquerque in which to live.
