Very flat and wide enough to accommodate both bikers and walkers. There are 2 trails, one on either side of the river but the wide dirt "lower" trail is trafficked by horses so proceed with caution. Trail says it is not open until 7am but when we showed up the gate wasn't locked.
A great ride in Albuquerque. Start at the parking lot at Alameda Blvd and the river. Ride it to "The End of Albuquerque" and back. The ride is flat but scenic. Boxing Bear Brewing is a half-mile from where you parked -- a nice way to finish the day.
This is a great trail. Crowded on the weekends, but still great. Saturday and Sundays, swing by Bike-In Coffee (take the I-40 east bike path just south of the freeway) for food and coffee. Flying Star on Rio Grande (just south of Montano) is another good midway point.
The Bosque bike path is a great place to run. I recommend running along this bike path for longer distances. Summer/Spring months I recommend lots of sun block and bug spray. Fall/Winter months I recommend layers of clothing. Watch out for lots of local bikers riding this path. Beware of coyotes in the early morning hours.
The trail is paved and runs South to area just past the ABQ Zoo. The full route down and back is approx. 35 miles but I-40 is 12.5 miles with other turn around points. Think as you travel South due to 1 to 2 degree incline as you head North. Great for beginners!3
