“Fast twisting singletrack through the Rio Grande Bosque (forest).”— LeeAB Brinckerhoff
Family Friendly No hard technical features whatsoever. No hard climbs. Very scenic. Easy riding for young riders.
This trail is also popular with equestrians as the piles of horse dropping attest to. It is also hard to see what's coming around the next corner because of the heavy vegetation - crazy to think you are in the desert!
There are several side trails that move off to the right to access the river and a handful of trails to access the road - if you make a wrong turn just backtrack, the area you are riding in is never more than a couple hundred feet wide. You'll pass through a burn zone from a fire in 2012 that was on the other side of the river for the most part. After that you'll come to a large open area that near the end of the town of Corrales.
Ride the road to cross through the open area and you'll find 2 trails continuing on. The one on the left is near a blue gate and there's another to the left of that. You can take either way, but you should return on the opposite because they each offer a different experience, though they do join in the middle and again at the end as you approach the parking at the opposite end of the trail. In this section the trail is tighter in many places and sleeves would not be a bad idea.
Once you reach the parking area, turn around and retrace your tracks back to your car.
