Located on the central Rio Grande flyway, Rio Grande Nature Center State Park offers excellent bird watching throughout the year. Visitors can observe about 250 species of birds including roadrunners and wood ducks. A trail system along the river, demonstration gardens and indoor and outdoor wildlife viewing areas add to this valuable public resource.

Easy access to the river make this trail worth taking. Best done either early in the morning or mid autumn. I plan to go back during a snow fall.

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.
