The Cabezon Linear Park Trail is a paved pathway that spans both sides of an irrigation channel in the Cabezon subdivision of Rio Rancho. Forming a beautiful, recreational backbone running north and south through the newly-built community, the trail provides access to Chianti Park, a small community park with picnic and playground areas and open space for a variety of activities. Near the southern end of the neighborhood, the trail also links up with A Park Above, an inclusive community park that features a wide variety of activities for people of all abilities to get outside and have a good time.
The trail begins in the south along Westside Boulevard at the edge of the suburb, then winds its way north between rows of homes - the trail does require crossing the road at several points, but the majority of the path is nestled off the grid. The path is lined with trees and shrubs that thrive in the dry mountain climate, and dotted with benches and structures to provide some shade for trail users to take a breather. Coming to an end after almost two miles, the trail terminates on Nicklaus Drive in an area currently still largely undeveloped as of 2019, although the rapidly growing nature of Rio Rancho means that likely won't be the case for long - the Cabezon Linear Park Trail helps to ensure that neighborhoods both existing and future will have a great recreational asset to rely on.
Around the trail's midpoint, the Cabezon Boulevard Trail intersects the trail at the road crossing, allowing trail users to continue north and west up to Unser Boulevard and the spacious Cabezon Park.
Parking is available along the trail at A Park Above on the trail's southern end, located at 2441 Westside Ct. SE. Parking is also available near the trail's northern end at Chianti Park, located on Alamo Drive just south of Chianti Road.
