The Paseo del Bosque Bike Trail, known to locals as "the Bosque," (pronounced Boss - key) is one of the premier bicycle trails in the southwestern United States. It is even better in early October during the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. Not only is early fall a good time to ride the trail due to cooler weather, but your chances of spotting gorgeously colorful balloons in the wee hours of the morning is much better, also. The trail is right in the city of Albuquerque, it gets used quite heavily. Yet it never seems crowded and, like on most trails, the bikers, strollers, and skaters all seem happy to be outside enjoying this gem of a trail. And, as an added bonus in addition to the Rio Grande River scenery, the friendly people, and the perfectly graded trail ride, you may be lucky enough to spot a roadrunner, coyote, or deer along the trail.

The unpaved Bosque is shaded single track heaven in NM! Mountain bikers barely care about this place thanks to the Foothills. Rewarding place to ride if you can live with zero elevation gain on your Strava app!

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.

Super easy; more of a walk than a hike. Always picturesque in one way or another! I'm going to upload some great ones from fall...

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.
