This is more of a sidewalk by a super busy street. You would have to make quite a few stops in your run/walk or ride as there are many street crossings. Nothing scenic about this trail south of I40 unless you like watching cars race.
This trail is very poorly maintained. Bushes are over grown, puddles create mud which covers the hard surface in dirt, and and most recently horses have been using the trail and haven't been cleaned up after. I had to ride portions of this trail with my shirt over my nose. I've ridden twice and gotten thorns in my tires both times. This trail probably works for hiking or running but it's a bust for biking because of the maintenance issues.
This is an excellent bike trail, flat, empty, and scenic. I followed "bike chic's" excellent directions. I rode south from where I parked for a total of 15 miles round trip.

I ride on this outstanding trail every week, and am always impressed with the beautiful scenery in the middle of the city. I have seen so much wildlife (sandhill cranes, coyotes, bald eagles, night herons, and more). You can connect to several other trails and go far and wide. Highly recommended!
Water was flowing today in the channel. There are 2 spots where you can't tell which way the real trail goes, but as someone told me, just follow the water. It was only about 1.5 miles long, not many cars to bother with, nice scenery. Crossing the big street was a pain, can't wait for the tunnel to be built.
The best access is Gomez Rd--Valley Maple St off Upper Valley Rd just north of Country Club road.
Lovely ride and fairly easy. Watch out for runners and other cyclists. It can get pretty busy.
Trail connects to Tramway trail. Surface has expansion cracks up to 3 inches wide. All up hill from Morris St.

We rode this trail in February on our way to Mesa Az from MN. This trail us an easy stop of off I40. We parked at the BioPark-Zoo and entered the trail next to the train depot. We headed south the trail was easy to follow though to loop back you ride along the road and cross one street. There are benches often and the trail is great. We continued north from past where we started -that part of the trail offered less shade and was more heavily travelled. On the way home we rode this trail again and it was quite busy on a Saturday. Worth the stop.
In my quest to ride every latitude from Canada to Mexico by trail only, I started at the north end of the Linear Park Trail and then joined the Paseo del Bosque Trail to where it connects to the Chavez Loop at NM Hwy 500. Chavez Loop is now a nice hard surface trail without the concern for cactus needles generating flat tires. I did not turn back north on the loop, but what I could see was great trail. The route I rode 4/27/15 was 22 miles from MLK Jr High to Hwy 303. Spring is a nice time for color given trees are leafing out with a misty yellow cast and the purple flowered Jacaranda trees are ubiquitous. I think spring is the time to ride in Albuquerque, especially for snow belt bicyclists. At least with temperatures in the 60's one doesn't need to worry about too much heat.
