Boca Negra Trail Description

The Boca Negra Trail is a paved, multi-use pathway that is currently divided into two separate segments, located in northern Albuquerque around the beautiful open space area formed by the Boca Negra Canyon. From the east, the trail begins on San Ildefonso Drive just across from the end of the Mariposa Basin Recreation Trail; the trail heads west along the shrub-lined earthen diversion channel, coming to an end at Tesuque Drive.

Trail users can continue south along the sidewalk to Mojave Street and west again to Atrisco Drive - be warned that there is no sidewalk or other accommodations on this stretch of road, which leads to the entrance to Boca Negra Canyon. At the entrance, the road morphs into a multi-use trail that continues northwest through the open high-desert landscape until reaching Unser Boulevard - due to the topography of the canyon area, the trail has a fairly steep grade for this section, so be prepared for some climbing. Reaching the busy roadway, trail users can turn back east along Compass Drive to follow the Volcano Heights Trail, or cross under the road to continue on a nice looping stretch of trail around the flood control area, with both choices providing great options for those looking to get in some extra exercise.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking with a paid vehicle entrance fee is available along the trail at the Boca Negra Canyon park, located at the end of Atrisco Drive north of Mojave Street.
