Rio Grande Nature Center Trails Professional Review and Guide

"The Rio Grande Nature Center State Park provides an ideal escape to nature from the city, if only for a short time. The small network of trails here takes hikers for a quick stroll along the Rio Grande and o?er numerous bird-watching opportunities. Blinds at the nature center are available for bird viewing, and the 1.35-mile loop described in this hike is perfect for taking in more scenery as well as wildlife.

Rio Grande Nature Center State Park is located just minutes from downtown Albuquerque and is right on the central Rio Grande Flyway. Visitors to the park can expect to see some of the 250 different species of birds that live in or migrate through the area. The bosque, a riverside forest, has plenty of cottonwood trees to offer shade to hikers and provides opportunities to see sandhill cranes, porcupines, roadrunners, and other wildlife."
