Lots of variety and space to explore. There’s a path for every person here with asphalt, wide dirt paths, smaller paths closer to the river, and paths that weave in and out of the trees and shrubs.
We came to the trail from Pennsylvania and our GPS got us close to a trail head at the end of a dead end street in the southern section around mile marker 9. We had to ask a person riding on the road where the trail was. Not well marked where we started and we just parked at the dead end. This was the most scenic trail I have even been on and it was absolutely beautiful. Other reviews warned that a part of the trail (that I was on) was a trail that followed "along side" railroad tracks and was not really a level Rails to Trails. They were absolutely correct. The trail followed level and straight railroad tracks but the entire ride for me was up and down hills following the terrain. I had a mountain bike and if I was on a hybrid I would have given up. There are some loose dirt portions and a lot of ups and downs. So much so that these were the hardest 10 miles (up and back) that I ever did. Could do with a hybrid but recommend mountain bike on this part of the trail. Be prepared for a workout.
This is not really a “trail” in my opinion. It’s a nice walk but noisy. Cabezon has become a very busy street.
Great trail. I rode the whole thing. Started at South end. Trail in that part is more sketchy, but it soon smooths out to basically a dirt road. There are lots of short climbs, so don't expect a flat rail trail. Like others have said, it is a trail, next to a railroad. It does NOT follow the railroad grade. That was perfect for me, as it was one of the best gravel rides I have done! Nice views. Some geocaches along the way if that is your thing. Not busy, but more hikers and bikers than I expected for a Monday.
Maps and hiking trail are great. It’s up and down but outlook points are beautiful.
We loved this ride on our e-bikes. But be careful some of the bike riders go way to fast for the conditions. I came across a wooden bridge with people walking on it, I respectfully walked my bike across and bike rider came sailing around the corner, did not slow down and nearly took us all out. No apology..nothing. There are congested areas on the trail..be careful
We rode this trail on our e-bikes. We got to see some pretty parks and enjoyed the ride. However the trail needs some TLC, as there were several places that needed to be cleaned up. The ride was pretty rough in places where the trail needs some resurfacing. Also, some better signage would be helpful in places where the trail breaks and follows city roads. Otherwise, an enjoyable ride.
Nice trail. Many road crossings. Next to highways so noise was present.
Nice continuous asphalt trail along the Rio Grande River. Connected to Outfall Channel Trail which connected to Triviz Multi-use path.
Nice Asphalt Trail. Many road crossings having to go through many trail pillars.
We visited Albuquerque and found this trail it was a great ride!
Flat, long and smooth ride.
