La Llorona Multi-Use Path

good start

November, 2019 by twopalms_2

First time on bike trails in Las Cruces where they have made a good start towards connecting many short bike trails. We were able to connect enough to get a nice, flat easy 18 mile ride. Look forward to exploring more trails in the area.

Playa Drain Trail

group ride

September, 2019 by upsp3762

Rio Grande River Trail

Rio Grande River Trail Review

August, 2019 by colavs80004

Nice trail! It is within biking distance from me. You have nice views of the Rio Grande and of the mountains, other than that it is pretty boring. I do use the trail sometimes to commute from Santa Teresa to Anthony, New Mexico.

Rio Grande River Trail

Poorly maintained

October, 2017 by jimfinn12

This trail is very poorly maintained. Bushes are over grown, puddles create mud which covers the hard surface in dirt, and and most recently horses have been using the trail and haven't been cleaned up after. I had to ride portions of this trail with my shirt over my nose. I've ridden twice and gotten thorns in my tires both times. This trail probably works for hiking or running but it's a bust for biking because of the maintenance issues.

Rio Grande River Trail

Rio Grande trail in El Paso was great!

April, 2017 by mark.harold

This is an excellent bike trail, flat, empty, and scenic. I followed "bike chic's" excellent directions. I rode south from where I parked for a total of 15 miles round trip.

Rio Grande River Trail

Best access

August, 2016 by wjd_tl

The best access is Gomez Rd--Valley Maple St off Upper Valley Rd just north of Country Club road.

Rio Grande River Trail

Practically impossible to find, but worth it!

March, 2015 by bike chic

I looked for the access to this trail, and FINALLY found it by accident! It is NOT marked, so you must know where to go. The easiest access point is off of Exit # 2 on I- 10. This is Vinton Road (Texas 37 spur). Go west about 1 mile, JUST PAST the stoplight at Doniphan Dr. (Texas 20). There is a Family Dollar store on the north east corner. Cross the bridge and the access is IMMEDIATELY, and I mean IMMEDIATELY on the left. It is JUST AFTER YOU CROSS THE BRIDGE!! You will see a gravel turn off that is only about 50 feet long. There is a gate with big red circle on it...it is closed. You can park right there, but make sure you park so you can get out when you are done...you DO NOT want to get boxed in by other cars!! Once there, you will see the pavement/path in front of you. The scenery is beautiful! You can see mountains on three sides, and you'll see why they talk about the West Texas sky being bigger than other skies!! You'll see roadrunners, and lots of vegetation. The trail goes parallel to the Rio Grande...tho empty, it's still impressive. Be careful...it can flash flood when it rains, so watch the forecast for storms.
The trail does go from Country Club Drive in El Paso to Anthony, New Mexico. As of 3/22/15, Country Club Drive is under construction and it is a nightmare. You have to ride about 1/2 mile along the river levee on gravel to get to the paved trail. I didn't go as far north as Anthony, so I don't know about the access point there. The total distance is 10.5 miles. There are no facilities anywhere, so make sure you take enough water. It's a great desert trail...enjoy!
