Edgemere Median Linear Trail

Nice easy path

October, 2023 by mikelcorbin22

I was in town on business and was looking for a place to walk/run. This was pretty close to the hotel. It was an easy path that was well lit even after dark. It’s down the wide median through a neighborhood. Great use of the space! People were friendly and the neighborhood is nice.

Triviz Multi-Use Path

Nice trail next to highways

March, 2023 by gsauncog

Nice trail. Many road crossings. Next to highways so noise was present.

La Llorona Multi-Use Path

Nice trail with connections

March, 2023 by gsauncog

Outfall Channel Trail

Nice trail, many road crossings

March, 2023 by gsauncog

Nice Asphalt Trail. Many road crossings having to go through many trail pillars.

Playa Drain Trail

great beginnings

October, 2021 by elviaturtle

First time on a bike since a kid and with a trailer. Super clean. Highly recommend

Playa Drain Trail

Great Trial

August, 2021 by zp6rqvqtbd

A really nice trail that’s well lit at night. Right across from the Shawver park and the Cowan water center it’s short enough to make walking and running a good sweat but it also works just enough to enjoy a nice evening walk. Wish it could be extended though . It’s well lit at night like I said so it’s pretty safe and accessible.

Las Cruces Dam Open Space Trails

Best Paved Trail in Las Cruces

May, 2021 by britte.lowther

Hope it gets longer!

Rio Grande River Trail

Gentle ride

July, 2020 by tilsonke

Nice trail, however, more maintenance needs to be done on the trail to clear away the weeds from cyclists. If you’re in Las Cruces consider starting at the top of the trail otherwise you will be driving half an hour to the end of the trail and riding it backwards. As a couple the trail was fine but I would not ride this alone as a woman.

Sonoma Ranch Multi-Use Path

Sonoma Ranch Bike Trail

March, 2020 by donvnarr

A 10 ft wide ribbon of asphalt running from just north of hiway 70 down to Lohman Drive makes for a scenic moderately exertive 5 mile bike jaunt. Recognize that this trail parallels Sonoma Ranch Blvd which carries a fair amount of traffic. The views can be stunning but next time I’ll wear ear plugs.

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

Nice place to ride a mountain bike or road bike or walk or take your furry friend nice a clean beautiful scenery ¿¿

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.
