Following its namesake thoroughfare along the northern edge of Albuquerque, the Paseo del Norte Trail traverses both rural and urban landscapes. It offers views of two important natural landmarks in the area, the Rio Grande, which it crosses mid-trail, and the Sandia Mountains on its eastern tip. After Edith Blvd., the trail climbs significantly as it approaches the foothills.
Parking and Trail Access
Mid-trail, parking is available in two locations: off El Pueblo Road and also near the intersection of Paseo Del Norte Blvd. and Rio Grande Blvd.
