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.

Sonoma Ranch Multi-Use Path

Sonoma Ranch Bike Trail

March, 2020 by donvnarr

A 10 ft wide ribbon of asphalt running from just north of hiway 70 down to Lohman Drive makes for a scenic moderately exertive 5 mile bike jaunt. Recognize that this trail parallels Sonoma Ranch Blvd which carries a fair amount of traffic. The views can be stunning but next time I’ll wear ear plugs.

Paseo del Bosque Trail

nice

December, 2019 by astroman

Relatively well marked and clean. The trail is particularly smooth.

La Llorona Multi-Use Path

good start

November, 2019 by twopalms_2

First time on bike trails in Las Cruces where they have made a good start towards connecting many short bike trails. We were able to connect enough to get a nice, flat easy 18 mile ride. Look forward to exploring more trails in the area.

Santa Fe Rail-Trail

need a mountain bike for this

November, 2019 by b30

not suitable for a cruiser bike

Cloud-Climbing Trestle Trail

History, scenic views

October, 2019 by conniegs

I did the Mexican Canyon trestle trail twice this summer. The second time I took two friends with me, who enjoy hiking and history. This trail is a mile long, with one short descent and ascent around a patch of private property, making this NOT a near-level trail. Historic plaques and views of the White Sands in the distance, make this worth experiencing.

While one can do this trail as a quick two-mile out-and-back trail, this trail is part of a network of trails in the Trestle Recreation Area. Grab a map at the replica depot and create your own four, six, or even eight-mile hike around historic former railroad grades.

In the three days we spent around Cloudcroft, we also hiked the Switchback trail, Old Cloudcroft Highway, and the Osha trail, all easily accessible near Cloudcroft.

If you plan on parking at the Replica depot, remember that it's closed for the season from I October to 1 March, but all trails are still accessible via other trail heads. The replica depot parking area closes at 6pm during the season, so if you plan on a long hike, park in town and walk in. The hosts promptly close the parking lot at 6pm.

Paseo del Bosque Trail
