Santa Fe Rail-Trail

Great ride but ended early???

July, 2022 by tanyaisfeld

We had a great ride on this trail today. We had planned to go the entire way and back but when we got close the end, at the last road crossing, we lost the trail. It just disappeared. So we turned around and headed back. 30+ miles round trip from our Airbnb which is a 15 minute walk from the rail yard starting point. Loved the dirt portion of this trail especially!! Very much an up and down rollercoaster feel that is fun to ride.

Paseo del Bosque Trail

Excellent trail for a day ride

March, 2022 by stvatandem

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.

Canyon Rim Trail

Beautiful ride

February, 2022 by angela19

We only rode a part of this trail, but the view beautiful. It was definitely worth our time to stop on our drive to check it out. We parked at the small lot on the east end. We were the only cyclists, but it seemed popular with walkers and runners.

Santa Fe Rail-Trail

Not Really a Rail Trail

August, 2021 by bdamaddox

This is not really a rail trail; it is a trail beside a rail. If you prefer level or steady grades like rail trails, this one will be a disappointment. The dirt trail portion is in good condition although there are several washes with deep sand. It is picturesque and the roller coaster nature of it keeps it exciting, but I can't say that it was an above average experience.

Santa Fe Rail-Trail

serene countryside

June, 2021 by brendenpreddy

Rode here last week down to Eldorado. Had to turn around due to time constraints but really enjoyed the rolling nature of the dirt pack to the east. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a leisurely desert ride. Least favorite part was paved and concrete sections in town with the sizable cracks but not unpleasant, more so inconvenient. great ride in and out of the train depot.

Rancho Viejo Trail

Nice views, but look sharp

April, 2021 by

Rode this trail on 22 April 2021. The trail is part of a network of trails in a newer neighborhood south of Santa Fe, near the Santa Fe Community College. There are number of feeder trails, and signage is lacking. Be alert for short steep climbs, sections with broken asphalt, a section of broken rock gravel on either side of a road crossing, and dog walkers. If you run off the trail beware of cholla cactus. The high desert with pinion pines with views of distance mountains make for an interesting trail. Parking was closed, we found parking in the neighborhood.

Mariposa Basin Recreation Trail

Beautiful and Calm

Quiet trail with houses, bunnies, and ducks.

Santa Fe Trail

November, 2020 by susie.tassin

We ride from near the plaza downtown Santa Fe. It was a great ride. We have cruisers with 7 speeds and it was fine. We turned around about 6 miles from Lamy. The only downside was having to cross a couple of busy 4 lane rouses.

River Trail

Mid-October ride was wonderfully, relaxing and peaceful.

Gibson Boulevard Trail

Gibson Road Trail

July, 2020 by leonardjoe677

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.
