Highlights Walk along a drain in Corrales, return on a trail along the Rio Grande.
Trailhead Directions Go across the Alameda Bridge to the West Side and turn right on SR448, Corrales Road. Go north about 1/2 mile and PARK (0.0 mi) on the east side of the road (the parking area is opposite Cabezon Rd).
Actual Hike Walk on the right-hand side of Corrales Rd a short distance, then cross the road and walk the ditch bank to TURN RIGHT (Olguin Rd). Walk along this road until you come to the Curtis-Losack Farms (5606 Corrales Rd) (C-LFARMS (3.5 mi)). If you call them beforehand, they might be willing to give a tour of their apple processing area. After lunch, go back the way you came, or head southeast on Paseo de Dulcelina Rd until you reach the Sandoval Lateral next to the Rio Grande. At CROSS (5.1 mi), cross over the canal and walk along the other side back to the parking area.
Comments Another lunch option would be to go directly to the river (convenient bushes). In 1/10, we saw construction of another crossing where a canal comes into the river (Bernaval Rd). The Corrales REC CENTER at 500 Jones Rd has porta potties that we can use if necessary.
