Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The bosque (pronounced BOW-skay) is a diminishing plant community found along the fl oodplains of major rivers in the southwest. The most extensive bosque in New Mexico stretches more than 200 miles along the middle Rio Grande from near Santa Fe to the southern state line. The name comes from the Spanish word for woodlands, but stately cottonwood trees characterize a tall forest canopy in the bosque in Albuquerque."
