I’ve never been on the Paseo de Bosque trail from one end to the other, so this Saturday afternoon seemed like a good time to try it. Together with Marvin and Jerry, we started out in mid afternoon from the Alameda Open Space parking lot.
Paseo de Bosque is a paved multi-use trail along the east bank of the Rio Grande. It gets a lot of use from hikers, bikers, and roller-bladers. It’s not unusual to see mothers on roller-blades pushing their kids in baby carriages. There’s even a yellow center line painted on the trail to help with traffic. Paseo de Bosque is located within the Rio Grande Valley State Park and is regularly patrolled by police on mountain bikes.
The three of us spent a lot of time solving the world’s problems, and consequently ran out of daylight. The trip to the south terminus of Paseo de Bosque will have to wait for another day.
