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 :)
On a vacation from southern California, we rode the trail on a beautiful weekday morn in October of 2015. We parked at the north trailhead, pedaled down as far as the Botanic Garden, then headed back.
We pretty much had the trail to ourselves on a perfect fall day. The trail was flat, straight, smooth, and ideal for those looking for a fast paced workout. Being out-of-staters we were looking forward to majestic views of the mighty Rio Grande, but we were denied due to all of the trees between the river and the trail. On the bright side, at least some fall color was beginning to appear on those trees.
I think the highlights for us were admiring the grand estates that line the trail, and checking off another state on our quest to bike all fifty.
