Need to Know

Watch for hikers/walkers on this trail, particularly the portion east of the diversion canal. Many locals walk their dogs along here.

Description

This ride can be done in either direction and starts and ends at the Alameda Blvd parking lot on the east side of the Rio Grande.

Take a short spur of paved trail from the parking right and under Alameda Blvd. Make a left over a small bridge which crosses the diversion canal. Head up the small hill and bear right back down to the bosque. The pavement gives way to a slightly sandy hardpack trail along the bosque in the trees. Ignore the spurs and stay on the main trails as many spurs in this section dead-end in sand and brush.

Make a left just before the end of this loop and then a right to take the inner arm of the trail to the end. The bosque singletrack ends at a "no trespassing" sign for the Sandia Pueblo land.

Make a sweeping loop to the right here and head back on the outer singletrack.

Next, make a left back up the arroyo wall and cross it down to a small pedestrian bridge. Cross this bridge to the east side of the diversion canal and follow a narrow strip of singletrack which lies between the diversion canal and property fences all the way back to the Alameda Blvd parking lot to complete this loop.
