The Paseo Del Bosque Trail is a paved trail that travels along the banks of the Rio Grande River as it flows through the City of Albuquerque. From the northern most point to the southern end is about 15 miles, though the trail takes a big loop at the end and is located on both sides of the river in some locations. The trail goes through the brushy areas along the river and it is a good location for watching birds and seeing the other wildlife that visit or live along this riparian corridor through the city.


The Paseo Del Bosque Trail is paved and open for bike riding, walking and running. Some access paths to the trail are unpaved. The trail is in a sandy area and sand may blow across the trail. Most of the trail is away from streets and there are underpasses for crossing busy thoroughfares.
