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