This trail is great... if you like trees and what little natural greenery Rio Rancho has to offer. And there are no hills!

We have been walking this area for over 10 years. It is dog and bicycle friendly. You can take a short or long walk, there is a lot of shade which is nice in a "desert area". You can actually walk to the Rio Grande....More

I have spent a reasonable amount of time at Willow Creek. The trail system is excellent. This i an ideal place to observe fauna and flora. The Rio Grande River runs next t to the trail offering beautiful scenery.

A pleasant, level place for a 2 mile walk in the bosque. Lots of geese, coyotes and hawks this time of year. Most responsible dog walkers keep their pets on a leash and most clean up after their pet leaving the trail nice for all.

Nice wide path, with several different variations of length, some shaded areas. Good view of the Rio Grande just a bit off the path.
