Corrales Bosque

Average Rating:    (3.33 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 3

This section of the bosque trail is big ring riding all the way. You can really cruise here and wind between the trees on this winding path. There are some really fun and tight side trails to hit as well. This trail also gets horse use, so it is not as tight as the Abq. bosque down off of Candelaria. Rode north till you hit an open field, then cross the filed and hit the bosque again further north. You will be at the end when you come up to the subdivision in Bernalillo.

Summary:
Great trail if you want to get out for an hour or so. Trail goes on for a while like others have said, tight corners make it fun and the occassional sand traps make things fun. You can also find some great river/mountain views if you take the right track.

Recommended Route:
take Alameda, park in the open space parking lot. go under bridge to the north and over the river to the west side of the river and drop down on any of the spots.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Bosque Trail for a fun asphalt cruise with the family.

Summary:
Ride this trail during the week or during the winter. There are way too many people on the trail during the weekend and after work. Most people are ok, but there are a few horse people that have some pretty strong personalities - be prepared for some unwanted attitide.

As for the trail - this is really fun if you can stay in the big chain ring. this trail - and the really fun side trails was meant to be ridden very, very fast. Take the hardtail and leave the suspension at home. You won't be sorry!

Just remember that when you come to the open meadow after about 30-mins of riding that you can cross it and continue on in the bosque until you reach the subdivision on the river. Most people turn back when they hit the meadow...

Recommended Route:
Start at Alameda and do an out and back.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
The bosque - both sides.

Summary:
Fun and easy for almost everyone. Flat, but with lots of fairly dense brush along sides alternating with open cottonwood areas, and river views. Some tight turns to keep it interesting. Watch for horses and walkers. Since there are many blind turns, this is NOT a place to race! A few dry, sandy areas you must power through, but mostly it's hard pack. Beware tamarisk (salt cedar) branches, as they have thorns that will give you a flat. These occur mostly on side trails. The main trail is pretty free of debris, but be careful around flood control devices. They look like giant "jacks" connected by cables and are made from sharp iron beams the ends of which are head-high, and can hurt you badly if you hit one. The trail winds through several of these. There are also a few places where you have to duck under cables.

Recommended Route:
Alameda: parking E. of Rio Grande bridge, cross over to W. side on foot/bike bridge, ride levee N. to trail that branches off right. N. to parking area, return.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
There are many side trails branching off the main trail and there is a levee dirt road parallel to the entire length with connector trails into/out of the single track through the woods. The side trails get brushy and difficult sometimes, and some areas have thorny branches lying around.
