Features -none-

Family Friendly A river sometimes runs through the desert and the path for bikes is quite level and sufficiently wide.

Description

You can start or end here depending on where you park. This multi-use path runs with the river, north from West Picaho Avenue, and is a great trail when the river is running. In the summer, make sure you bring something to protect you from the bugs.

The ride is lesuirly and flat, with enough space in case you want to go fast. The views are nice in all directions and this is also a connecting leg for the Las Cruces Dam Outfall Channel Trail. The trail will eventually connect to the Triviz Drive in an effort to make a route around the city.

Here we have the terminal for the northern leg on the right where the poured concrete ends and the gravel begins. This incline to the river levee, straight ahead, runs behind me along the river for many more miles to the north. The Las Cruces day-use trail starts approximately 50 yards behind me.
