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

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

Paseo del Bosque Trail

Great!

February, 2016 by fluegel.becky

We rode this trail in February on our way to Mesa Az from MN. This trail us an easy stop of off I40. We parked at the BioPark-Zoo and entered the trail next to the train depot. We headed south the trail was easy to follow though to loop back you ride along the road and cross one street. There are benches often and the trail is great. We continued north from past where we started -that part of the trail offered less shade and was more heavily travelled. On the way home we rode this trail again and it was quite busy on a Saturday. Worth the stop.

Paseo del Bosque Trail

Chavez Loop takes you farther south

May, 2015 by gim820

In my quest to ride every latitude from Canada to Mexico by trail only, I started at the north end of the Linear Park Trail and then joined the Paseo del Bosque Trail to where it connects to the Chavez Loop at NM Hwy 500. Chavez Loop is now a nice hard surface trail without the concern for cactus needles generating flat tires. I did not turn back north on the loop, but what I could see was great trail. The route I rode 4/27/15 was 22 miles from MLK Jr High to Hwy 303. Spring is a nice time for color given trees are leafing out with a misty yellow cast and the purple flowered Jacaranda trees are ubiquitous. I think spring is the time to ride in Albuquerque, especially for snow belt bicyclists. At least with temperatures in the 60's one doesn't need to worry about too much heat.

Paseo del Norte Trail
