Santa Fe Rail-Trail

serene countryside

June, 2021 by brendenpreddy

Rode here last week down to Eldorado. Had to turn around due to time constraints but really enjoyed the rolling nature of the dirt pack to the east. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a leisurely desert ride. Least favorite part was paved and concrete sections in town with the sizable cracks but not unpleasant, more so inconvenient. great ride in and out of the train depot.

Hope it gets longer!

Rancho Viejo Trail

Nice views, but look sharp

April, 2021 by janet.l.evans

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.

Santa Fe Rail-Trail

Santa Fe Trail

November, 2020 by susie.tassin

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.

River Trail

great skating trail

October, 2020 by znbjunk

Very superb concrete for rollerskating - beautiful views for decent stretches! Approachable versatile and fun

Paseo del Bosque Trail

Relaxing and peaceful

October, 2020 by pcwhite12

Mid-October ride was wonderfully, relaxing and peaceful.

Gibson Boulevard Trail

Gibson Road Trail

July, 2020 by leonardjoe677

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.

Paseo del Bosque Trail

Hot and Dry

July, 2020 by gaber.family

Despite the 107 degree temp, it was a good ride.

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.
