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.

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.

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.

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 is closed. You can park right there, but make sure you park so you can get out when you are 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 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!
