Not sure where the app is taking us for the start point. Its just a neighborhood with no access to the trail, but once on the trail its a really nice walk.

Very nice ride, however not a drop of water in the Rio Grande. If you have a road bike the paved path is on the left; gravel path on the right for mountain bikes and walkers. I saw quail and many roadrunners and several hawks. If only there were water in the river it would be ultimate!!! Other than that nice change of pace

Like to walk here on Sunday mornings with my dogs. The trail is paved and easy to walk. The scenery changes all the time depending on the season.

good place to ride safely, no traffic. Watch out for sandy gravel spots...not too clean.

This is an easy walking trail, great if you want to be outside but don't feel like negotiating any difficult terrain or elevation change. Walking is mostly along levees and maintained trails. I like to ruck here in the evenings. My preferred access point is by Valley Creek Park off Upper Valley Rd.

One of my favorite places to take my pup! Dry most of the year but she loves running In the dry riverbed almost as much as swimming when there is water. Nice paved trail
