I recommend this trail for long runs it is a tough trail with lots of intervals. My goal is to conquer this run by mid March. Good luck to all local runners!

Really nice footing for walking, pretty views, and many trails on which to detour. Started out on U Mound and switched off onto South Foothills for a short, relatively easy hike.

Many trails to choose from for every rider. Beginner to difficult drops and downhill action. Great place to ride.

Very nice trail to explore the Albuquerque Open Space. The route is not very intuitive and it was easy to make wrong turns while running.
