Valle de Oro Trail Description

Running in between 2nd Street and the railway used by the New Mexico Rail Runner, the Valle de Oro Trail provides a convenient off-road trail that leads north from the Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge to an industrial stretch of southern Albuquerque. The paved rail-with-trail helps to improve non-motorized access to destinations like Mountain View Elementary School, the Mountain View Community Center, and the wildlife refuge - located on the former site of a dairy farm, this oasis of natural space in an urban environment is now much easier to reach by foot or bike thanks to the trail.

Constructed in late 2018, the Valle de Oro Trail also provides a connection to the five-mile loop trail known as the Chris Chavez Trail - the trails intersect right at the overpass over the South Diversion Channel, a concrete-lined water management tool that now serves as less of an obstacle due to the trail. The northern end of the trail currently halts at Prosperity Avenue, where the community center and playground lies just a block to the east - although trail users should note that there is currently no off-road accommodation to cross the railroad tracks and access the center.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at the southern end of the trail at the Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge, on 2nd Street SW. Additional parking is available along the trail at Mountain View Elementary School on 2nd Street, and at the northern end at the Mountain View Community Center on Prosperity Ave. (although please note as of 2019 there is no provided off-road access to the trail from the community center).
