50-Mile Activity Loop Plan - Overview
The 50-Mile Activity Loop is the City of Albuquerque’s proposed 50-mile, multi-use trail and bikeway facility that aims to fill the gaps in our existing trails and bikeways facilities to create a 50-mile bicycling, running and walking loop around the city.
The City worked with community leaders, citizen groups and local engineering firm Wilson & Company to develop the 50-Mile Activity Loop Plan, which was completed in September of 2013.
We’re now implementing the 50-Mile Activity Loop Plan. The Plan established the route that the Loop will take. A good portion of the Loop is already in place. The Plan recommends ways to fill in gaps (shown in red) to join with the blue sections (existing bikeways and trail facilities) to complete the 50-Mile Activity Loop. The map also shows mini-loops that can provide connections to the Loop, which would be a future project.
The short-term goal is to fill in gaps in bikeways and trail system and later add amenities, such as benches, shade structures, water fountains, landscaping, pocket parks, and wayfinding signs.
The project benefits quality of life and health and wellness for locals with opportunities for economic development, tourism and possible events, such as a 50-mile or Century ride and charity walks.
"The 50-Mile Loop will be a great asset for Albuquerque, to promote health and recreation and a destination for tourists." - Mayor Richard J. Berry
