About the 50-Mile Activity Loop

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.

City staff worked with the local engineering firm Wilson & Company and the community to develop the 50-Mile Activity Loop Plan, which was completed in September of 2013.

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.

Our 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
