Description

With almost no elevation gained or lost, the challenge of this trail lies mostly in balancing the desire for speed versus the desire to not run off the trail into the underbrush.

Start the trail by riding across a narrow metal bridge and up to a raised dirt road, find the trail dropping off the other side of this road towards the river. The trail starts off hugging the embankment of the road but soon drops right into the trees. Smooth singletrack with the occasional sand trap make for a fun fast ride.

You'll mostly just follow the tire tracks, there are tons of side trails that lead to the Rio Grande and few that lead back up to the raised dirt road. You'll never get too far though so you can always backtrack to the main trail, the Bosque (forest) is only a few hundred feet wide at its widest points. This section ends at a large open area with a couple of blue metal gates.

Corrales Bosque Trail - beautiful fall scenery.

Such an interesting and colorful ecosystem. Fall color just lights this area up. Trail is well made. Highly recommended!

Did not expect so much beauty on this trail. Bring your little shredders (if you have little ones). Seemingly endless flowy and scenic riding!

Burn remnants from a 2012 fire, luckily the wind was blowing from the west and the town of Corrales was spared. The fire actually jumped the river and burned a lot more area on the opposite shore, however the area was unpopulated.

Pretty sandy in parts, has some nice spurs to the river and a straight shot on top of the levee for coming back (but also sandy). 10mi
