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.
Quiet trail with houses, bunnies, and ducks.
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.
Very superb concrete for rollerskating - beautiful views for decent stretches! Approachable versatile and fun
Mid-October ride was wonderfully, relaxing and peaceful.
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.
Despite the 107 degree temp, it was a good ride.
Relatively well marked and clean. The trail is particularly smooth.
not suitable for a cruiser bike
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.
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 :)
