Mariposa Trail

Short enjoyable trail

December, 2018 by jpmosca_2000

Goes from Unser to Mariposa Park. From there you can take a trail west to Boca Negra Canyon or get on the Riverside trail.

Unser Boulevard Trail

Not really a trail however.

December, 2018 by jpmosca_2000

Like was said more of a street tour. Get off just past Montano and go into the Boca Negra Canyon. Try going up the hill inside the canyon. If you can do it you're in good shape. Wide bike lane but be careful..you're in Albuquerque.

Paseo del Bosque Trail

Great trail within city limits

October, 2018 by wmenne6

We road our mtb bikes therefore able to explore the many multi-use trails that shoot off the paved trail into Rio Grande Valley State Park. There were so many choices of paved, gravel and dirt trails. We did not have any issue with goathead spurs.

Paseo del Bosque Trail

nice ride, but bring your flat fixxing tools.

September, 2018 by kingdome

Sept 2018: Nice ride, quite flat except for underpasses. It was unexpectedly busy for a Sunday morning, but the first day the ride was great. Loved the scenery, the long straight sections and even the temperature of mid 80s was a relief for us on our two CatTrikes . We parked at Central Ave and rode north and then turned around and headed south, then back to the parking area. A nice ride to work the kinks out after sitting on a tour bus for a week. On the second day, we headed south first just to be different. We didn't make it back to Central before the goat head got me on the left front tire. At home, I normally ride some fairly rough surfaces but I don't usually worry about flat tires. I keep good rubber on all three tires and "thornproof" innertubes on my Cattrikes. Big Mistake! Goat heads are very plentiful and super tough. Ayway, after three days and three flats, we gave up. I think I will investigate airless tires. That would make the riding in that area much more enjoyable. A bit of research on the internet convinced me that the goat head problem will be a continuing problem far into the future. Perhaps a bit of warning to folks coming in from other parts of the country would be in order.

Unser Boulevard Trail

Unser blvd trail not really a trail

October, 2017 by mhw.wbw

This is more of a sidewalk by a super busy street. You would have to make quite a few stops in your run/walk or ride as there are many street crossings. Nothing scenic about this trail south of I40 unless you like watching cars race.

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.

Tramway Recreation Trail

Clear Day

A light wind day on excellent Northern Section of the Trail. Noel Keller

Paseo del Bosque Trail

Core Albuquerque ride

December, 2016 by reyemeyer

I ride on this outstanding trail every week, and am always impressed with the beautiful scenery in the middle of the city. I have seen so much wildlife (sandhill cranes, coyotes, bald eagles, night herons, and more). You can connect to several other trails and go far and wide. Highly recommended!

Paseo de las Montanas Trail

October, 2016 by nickervin

Fun trail.

Acequia Trail

Acequia Trail pleasant ride from rail depot terminus

September, 2016 by pchapman56

Water was flowing today in the channel. There are 2 spots where you can't tell which way the real trail goes, but as someone told me, just follow the water. It was only about 1.5 miles long, not many cars to bother with, nice scenery. Crossing the big street was a pain, can't wait for the tunnel to be built.

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.
