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.

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.

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

great skating trail

October, 2020 by znbjunk

Very superb concrete for rollerskating - beautiful views for decent stretches! Approachable versatile and fun

Canyon Rim Trail

Nice Easy Sunday Ride

August, 2019 by

This is a good trail for beginners or those who want a leisurely pedal in the mountain town of Los Alamos, NM. The west end of the trail starts at the giant parking lot for the Smith's Marketplace (groceries, Starbucks, deli and hotbar, and wine & cheese tasting bar) and winds along the Los Alamos Canyon rim through ponderosa and pinon pine and juniper forest, with great views of Los Alamos Canyon, the Rio Grande Valle, the Jemez Mtns to the west and the Sangre de Cristo Mtns to the east. There is a smaller parking lot with a nice clean indoor pit toilet at the east end of the trail, and if you would like to pedal a little further for some healthy refreshments, you can continue east on NM502 about 1/4 mi., then turn left (twice) and go to the end of Entrada Dr. (past Holiday Inn Express) to the Los Alamos Coop Market (organic and local groceries, soup and salad bar, deli, custom made sandwiches and fresh squeezed juices, and on Sunday between 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. you can get and awesome omelet breakfast for $10!). This is one of the few bike routes in Los Alamos that requires no major hill climbing and boasts 2 separate "million dollar bridges" - one spanning a narrow deep canyon. This trail is a wide, asphalt multi-user trail so there are walkers, joggers, baby strollers and dogs, as well as the gamut of non-motorized cyclists. Great way to be introduced to outdoors Los Alamos!

Nice Easy Sunday Ride

August, 2019 by

This trail is very nice for beginners and those just looking for a leisurely pedal in Los Alamos. At the west end of the trail you can park in the giant Smiths with lot and at the west end is a smaller parking area with a clean pit toilet “relief station. You can continue east on NM 502 at this point..

River Trail

Almost a 5 star

July, 2019 by wireboss

First off the path is made of the best skating concrete! No cracks, and great changing views. Heartily recommend. The only reason I didn't 5 star is that it is a slope that goes to the west that is a bit much going east. Someone else may say it's a great workout :)

Acequia Trail

Acequia Trail pleasant ride from rail depot terminus

September, 2016 by pchapman56

Water was flowing today in the channel. There are 2 spots where you can't tell which way the real trail goes, but as someone told me, just follow the water. It was only about 1.5 miles long, not many cars to bother with, nice scenery. Crossing the big street was a pain, can't wait for the tunnel to be built.
