Rio Bosque Trails
A network of trails winds throughout the park. Three are loop trails marked with distinctive logos: a frog for the 0.6-mile Bosque Trail (fully accessible), a duck for the 1.5-mile Wetland Trail and a dragonfly for the 2.4-mile Rio Trail. All three start near the park's visitor center. Pick up a self-guided tour brochure at the trailhead (or download them below), and check these trails out on your next visit.
Twice a month UTEP offers free walking tours at the park. These tours last approximately two hours and cover approximately two miles on level ground. In most months, one of the tours is an introduction to the park -- its history, its plants and animals, the ecosystem-restoration work in progress. The other tour focuses on bird populations of the park. For upcoming tours, check the calendar on the Rio Bosque Home Page.
The meeting place for all tours is a bridge crossing the Riverside Canal (see map). To get there from I-10, take Americas Ave. (Loop 375) to Pan American Dr., turn left onto Pan American and travel 1.5 miles to the bridge. Please be prompt.
