Easy walk without elevation gain. Lots of dogs and people along the trail as well as bicycle riders. Veer off trail to the Nature Center and learn about the surrounding vegetation. Also fun to watch the turtles in the channel.

Nothing taxing about this trail. Weather in late October was perfect. Fall color in the cottonwood trees was spectacular. There were lots of bike riders and not too many hikers. You can take your pick of distances. Very do-able with kids and dogs (old people too)!

A number of different tracks here between a stream and the Rio Grande. Choice of sand and paved trail. Excellent for running. Biking too.

We found this by accident while bike riding. Great fall foliage.

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.

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.
