Pueblo Montaño Trail Head Park, Albuquerque, New Mexico. Easy day trip. Located just South of Montano Road, East of Coors Blvd, and West of the Rio Grande River. Fires in 2003 burned a lot of the cottonwood trees. Firefighter Mark Chavez, has carved many of the dead trees into sculptures. The park also provides access to the Paseo del Bosque Bike Trail. When done, head West back to Coors Blvd, plenty of good eating places....

Looks like Paul Bunyan to me.

I have 40+ related photo's in a slide show here: Pueblo Montaño Trail Head Park Slide Show (http://www.flickr.com/photos/poncho_nm/sets/72157614827848559/show/ - broken link)

Enjoy.

Thanks.

I've walked the entire ABQ Bosque trail (about 16 miles) in the past, one piece at a time. I guess I have to do it again. A lot of people go by bike, but my dogs never did figure out how to pedal a bike, so we walk. Here is the city of ABQ's page with map on the entite trail: Paseo del Bosque Bike Trail in Albuquerque

Paseo del Bosque Bike Trail in Albuquerque

Quote:
Pueblo Montano Picnic Area and Trailhead

Parking: Pueblo Montaño is located south of Montaño Road; east of Coors Boulevard; and west of the Rio Grande River. The parking lot includes dedicated ADA and equestrian-parking areas

What to See: This multi-use recreational facility provides West-side access to the bosque trail-system.

You can also enjoy the wood carvings at this site. This area was severely affected by the 2003 bosque fires and Open Space turned this tragedy into a unique, informative and artistic expression for the love of the bosque. Local artist and firefighter Joseph Mark Chavez has carved representative pieces from the cottonwood tree stumps left intact. This site also includes an ADA-accessible picnic area and trail.
