Highlights

A walk along one of the irrigation ditches in Corrales. Varied scenery with Sandias and Rio Grande views, farms, horse ranches, funky houses, quail, rabbits, animal tracks, dense cottonwoods at times. Great for fall foliage.

Cautions

None.

Trailhead Directions

Go across the Alameda Bridge to the West Side and turn right on SR448, Corrales Road. Go north about 1/2 mile, beyond Cabezon Rd, and park on the east side of the road.

Actual Hike

Go across the road and walk the ditch bank as far as you want. Turn around and come back. The full hike goes to the intersection with Corrales Road.

Comments

The full length of the hike track is 9.1 miles out and back. You can make the hike an A or B hike by cutting it short. The hike is over level ground.

Recommend that you do the hike in reverse, starting at the north end at the Corrales Rd waypoint, since the northern part is more interesting.
