Dreamy walks, Glorious hikes
Whether flat and soft dirt trails down in the Bosque, or sand and gravel trails in the Sandia foothills, there are plenty of places to have a challenging and beautiful
walk in the local area. With the Rio Grande Nature Center only a quick 2 mile drive down the road, to the Sandia foothills, a few miles east, there are plenty of places for you to recharge in the midst of a heavy work schedule.
Note: Always bring a backpack filled with water, wear sunscreen, a hat, and dress appropriately for all seasons. Invest in good walking shoes, and download the ALL TRAILS app, and pay a visit to the local REI for more maps and info on local trails. Visit Outdoor REGear, a hiking and outdoor recreation consignment store for quality, gently used outdoor gear.
