The glyphs are interesting, even though there is also modern graffiti everywhere. Worth it if you don't have time to go on a longer hike elsewhere in the park.

Embudito Trail #192

The trail is worn down nicely but it's definitely a difficult hike. I'm reasonably in shape but the trail is very steep. After you get off the main trail and into the mountains, you end up having to climb over boulders a lot. We didn't go all the way, we turned around and it ended up being 2 hours round trip.

Nice little hike. The three trails in this little park are great for about an our trip. the first trail rises about 700 ft and can be a bit nerving if it is windy (and it was).

The Bosque bike path is a great place to run. I recommend running along this bike path for longer distances. Summer/Spring months I recommend lots of sun block and bug spray. Fall/Winter months I recommend layers of clothing. Watch out for lots of local bikers riding this path. Beware of coyotes in the early morning hours.

The trail is paved and runs South to area just past the ABQ Zoo. The full route down and back is approx. 35 miles but I-40 is 12.5 miles with other turn around points. Think as you travel South due to 1 to 2 degree incline as you head North. Great for beginners!3
