The trail is surrounded by neighborhoods but since it's wooded, you don't really feel you are in the neighborhoods. It is a nice little trip through the woods that isn't too hard to get too, yet it offers quite a bit of hiking. There are 720 Acres but w/quite a few trails to choose from. Mostly dirt, though some trails have rocks and gravel. Note: For years this place was know only as Gutierrez Canyon (300 Acres) but in 2008 the city of Albuquerque bought 420 acres (John A. Milne) and now the area is conjoined as the Gutierrez - Milne open Space.
