Alameda Drain Trail Description

The Alameda Drain Trail follows the earthen diversion channel for nearly two miles through the residential heart of downtown Albuquerque, providing a great recreation path for nearby residents to bike or walk around the neighborhood. Several small local parks, as well as local schools, are within a stone's throw of the trail, and the trail helps alleviate the barrier formed by the drain by making sure neighborhoods to the south have a way to get across.

The trail begins in the east at 2nd Street, and heads west along the flat, paved surface for over a mile. Reaching the end of the Alameda Drain, the trail continues to the north for a short distance along the Griegos Drain, connecting even more neighborhoods with each other. Perhaps too short for diehard trail enthusiasts too seek out, the trail is a great option for those seeking a more relaxed walk or ride in Albuquerque.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available near the trail's eastern end in Garfield Park, located at 907 Matthew Avenue next to the Garfield Middle School.
