I-40 Trail Description

Paralleling its namesake thoroughfare, the I-40 Trail stretches across Albuquerque from Unser Boulevard to Tramway Boulevard. Although major gaps in the trail currently exist, it's an important east-west route through the city.

Along the way, trail-goers will enjoy views of two of the area's most impressive physical features: the Rio Grande and the Sandia Mountains. The trail's eastern segment also offers access to Los Altos Park and Sandia Vista Park, providing additional recreational opportunities. As the trail crosses the Rio Grande, trail users are treated to the impressive Gail Ryba Memorial Pedestrian Bridge and scenic views of the river.

On the western end, the trail crosses paths with the Unser Boulevard Trail, another lengthy roadside trail that continues north and south along the western edge of the city. A short segment of the trail continues on the other side of Unser Boulevard, leading into the suburban blocks within the Parkway neighborhood.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at Los Altos Park on the trail's eastern trailhead.

See TrailLink Map for detailed directions.

I-40 Trail Reviews


A Great addition to the Trails in ABQ. There is a TrailHead on the north side of I-40
Where the Bosque Trail crosses under I-40, However the Gate to the trail was closed & I could not get my 3-wheel cycle through. Started on the Bosque Trail at the Aquarium off Central Ave. The Bosque has been resurfaced and is smooth. The I-40 has a real grade to the west as it crosses the Rio Grande. Great Vistas. Be careful going east, down grade, as there is a sharp 90 degree turn at the end.. Oct 5, 2011 Noel Keller
