La Llorona Multi-Use Path Description

La Llorona Multi-Use Path is located in the city of Las Cruces in southern New Mexico, less than an hour north of El Paso.  The trail sits on the eastern edge of the Rio Grande River. The Rio Grande, whose flow is controlled by dams and levees, is completely dry for part of the year. You can literally see the sandy riverbed. In the spring/ summer, the water is released to irrigate the farmlands along the river.  At this time, residents take advantage of the river for recreation, swimming, tubing and kayaking. 

The trail starts at Run Along Road, where it connects to another trail called the Outfall Channel Trail. The trail then heads south along the Rio Grande. At the midpoint, the La Llorona Park acts as a trailhead and provides parking for trail users. Past the park, the paved pathway continues south through the riverine brush, and concludes at a parking lot near Calle Del Norte.

The La Llorona Path is part of a belt of trails circling Las Cruces. It’s also a designated segment of the New Mexico’s proposed 500-mile Rio Grande Trail.

Parking and Trail Access

Park at La Llorona Park, which sits under Picacho Ave./ US 70. The park address is 3440 W Picacho Ave.  There is also a small lot at the southern end of the trail, near Calle Del Norte.
