New Mexico 528 Rec Path Description

The New Mexico 528 Rec Path consists of almost three and a half miles of paved asphalt trail, running along the side of the wide and busy state highway that cuts through the Albuquerque suburb of Rio Rancho. The nearby vehicular traffic and assortment of suburban shopping centers and strip malls that line the trail make for less-than picturesque trailside scenery, but the route serves a vital recreational and transportational purpose, empowering local cyclists and pedestrians.

The southern end of the trail picks up heading north from the county line at Westside Boulevard; the trail quickly passes by the entrance to the Haynes Community Center and Park, which is home to a huge variety of recreational activities. Continuing past hotels and restaurants along the highway, the trail crosses over to the east side of the road at Southern Boulevard, proceeding north and east behind the rows of homes that border this side. The path switches back to the west side of the road again at Ridgecrest Drive/Leon Grande Avenue - shortly after, the end of the High Resort Boulevard Trail merges in from the west, providing access to a series of trails within the developments to the northwest. The trail comes to an end at Rockaway Boulevard, where sidewalks and bike lanes continue north to lead into the open space and playground at Vista Hills Park.

An example of what happens when roadways are built to accommodate a variety of transportation needs, the New Mexico 528 Rec Path helps lessen the barrier that the highway forms for cyclists and pedestrians, creating improved connections in this sprawling suburban community.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available near the southern endpoint of the trail at the Haynes Community Center and Park, located at 2006 Grande Boulevard just off the highway. Parking is also available just off the northern end of the trail at Vista Hills Park, at 411 Rockaway Boulevard. Additional parking can be found at numerous business along the route of the trail.
