Mariposa Recreational Trail Description

The Mariposa Recreational Trail provides over a mile of paved asphalt trail that runs through the rolling hills in the rapidly-developing Mariposa subdivision, located in the far northwestern reaches of Rio Rancho. The trail provides a welcome dose of nature amidst the suburban homes and growing network of roads, offering a pleasant walk or ride through the open shrubland terrain that comprises the area's natural landscape.

At the northeast end of the trail, the trail intersects the Mariposa Parkway Trail, which continues up into the heart of the subdivision and up towards the Mariposa Community Center. An excellent asset for a developing community, along with its companion trail the Mariposa Recreational Trail ensures that residents both current and future will have plenty of opportunity for recreation and exercise.
