Trail shared by LeeAB Brinckerhoff

Fun twisting singletrack through the Rio Grande Bosque.

Features River/Creek

May be closed due to fire danger during the summer months.

Description

There is almost no elevation change. Start the trail by hiking 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. The trail is mostly smooth singletrack with the occasional sandy section.

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.

Hard to beat: singletrack, river, mountains.

Burn remnants from a 2012 fire, luckily the wind was blowing from the west and the town of Corrales was spared.
