Paseo del Bosque Trail

Excellent trail for a day ride

We started from the Journal Center RR Station Parking Lot on El Pueblo Rd NE and rode a nicely paved connecting trail (it runs parallel to RT-423) for about 2 miles to the Paseo del Bosque Trail. From there, my wife and I rode south to Rio Bravo Blvd SW (RT-500), before turning around and heading back north. On the return, we stopped at Tingley Beach for a break. There is a small pavilion there with some picnic tables and benches. There is also a well maintained restroom building.

Gibson Road Trail

Very convenient trail for the airport hotels, I was very happy that it is relatively level for the Albuquerque area. There is almost no shade, so I prefer it either early or late. Anyway during the pandemic and for the area, it is a good course.

Very popular, go early though

My friend and I ride this trail from Alameda to Rio Bravo and back, about 32 miles. We started a long time ago when it was first opened, back then only a handful of people would be riding, walking, roller blading along it. I went recently and was blown away by how popular it has become. I strongly recommend going early in the morning. Be sure to put slime in your tires, bring a snack and water. I love that no motorized vehicles are allowed as I'm too old for that, lol. Enjoy your ride/walk just please keep an eye out for old farts like me.

On a vacation from southern California, we rode the trail on a beautiful weekday morn in October of 2015. We parked at the north trailhead, pedaled down as far as the Botanic Garden, then headed back.
We pretty much had the trail to ourselves on a perfect fall day. The trail was flat, straight, smooth, and ideal for those looking for a fast paced workout. Being out-of-staters we were looking forward to majestic views of the mighty Rio Grande, but we were denied due to all of the trees between the river and the trail. On the bright side, at least some fall color was beginning to appear on those trees.
I think the highlights for us were admiring the grand estates that line the trail, and checking off another state on our quest to bike all fifty.

Mariposa Trail

Short enjoyable trail

December, 2018 by jpmosca_2000

Goes from Unser to Mariposa Park. From there you can take a trail west to Boca Negra Canyon or get on the Riverside trail.

Unser Boulevard Trail

Not really a trail however.

December, 2018 by jpmosca_2000

Like was said more of a street tour. Get off just past Montano and go into the Boca Negra Canyon. Try going up the hill inside the canyon. If you can do it you're in good shape. Wide bike lane but be careful..you're in Albuquerque.
