Rio Grande Nature Center State Park is a 2.1 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Albuquerque, NM that features a lake. The trail is good for all skill levels and primarily used for hiking and walking.
Very peaceful and beautiful walk. Just not big enough to enjoy it all day!
Good family hike around the bosque
Great to get away from the city. The walk along the river gives good views of the west Mesa and rich peoples houses. The nature center is cool and has great bird/wildlife watching areas.
Nice little hike- partial shade. A few different loop trails to follow but there are a lot of off-shoots so we used the map provided at the visitor center to stay on track. Took my 4 year old son this morning and he enjoyed the hike, river, bridges and turtles at the center which also had very friendly staff.
It's a fun place for families with small kids or people who are unable to walk long distances. There are several trails that spaghetti along the river, some on purpose and others due to irresponsible hikers. The hike to the pond is nice too.
The lake (or pond) is a nice place to be; however, the park is tiny. There is an extensive bike trail to the west of the park, which is more eventful.
