Don't miss bicycling on this trail while in Albuquerque

Well marked, pretty flat, scenic trail. The Nature Center is along the route and is a great place to stop and rest. Scenic spots overlooking the Rio Grande. Very enjoyable!

This is a nice place to run or walk when you are in Albuquerque. There are multiple places to park along the trail, and sometimes you have views of the Rio Grande River. The pieces of the trail that I have run keep you away from traffic and traffic crossings. The trail is paved, with a dividing line for some... More

Rented bikes for four hours and cycled along this trail. Great off-road cycle trail. No motorised traffic so good for kids. We cycled past the Botanic Gardens, round Tingley Beach and past the Zoo. We were able to spot elephants and llamas from the trail. We got some good views of the Rio Grande and got to see the local... More

The Paseo del Bosque Trail is a 16-mile trail that runs right along the heart of ABQ between the river and the city. It's paved and wide enough for two lanes of pedestrian/bicycle"traffic". It's relatively flat the entire length, with only a few rises to navigate around obstacles, and ducks over and under bridges with dedicated lanes. It's a great... More

What a pleasant treat! You can choose to start your hike anywhere from the Bosque canals all the way to the regular trails where bikers ride. You can take the Montano bridge, detour back down to the trail and meander by the river trails. You get treated to endless trails. It was such a beautiful treat. I highly recommend.

We like to walk and hike and this is a great in the heart of Albuquerque. What a lucky city to have this treasure. We hiked north from the Tingley and Central parking lot for about an hour. It was a cold day and we did not see but a few people. Lots of birds and easy trail to follow.... More

A very well-paved trail paralleling the Rio Grande (although you cannot see the river). Very flat, suitable for kids or occasional cyclists, but you'll encounter serious cyclists and commuters too.

We chase bike trails all over the US and this one is a true pleasure. Not only does it have lovely vista but it also wanders through lovely neighborhoods with awesome homes and estates. We will be back to ride more of the off shoots. Lucky Albuquerquians!!

We had a couple hours to kill before flying out and decided to walk on this trail. it is wonderful! We went west from Central Avenue. There are really two trails - one that is asphalt and in the sun and one that meanders through the trees along the river. Both are great. Make sure and get off the concrete... More

Biking this trail from one end to the other along the river is pleasant and not particularly challenging. There are several stops along the way and plenty of scenery. I would suggest that you can get there from almost any location in the city by bicycle. Don't expect a lot of hills, but do expect a completely paved and almost... More
