Best walking, jogging, biking trail along the river on the westside. Park inside Valley Creek Park(Upper Valley/Gomez Rd) You can go south towards Country Club Bridge(1 mile).It ends before the actual bridge, not far from it.This is my 2 mile walk to and fro. We go biking headed towards Borderland, Canutillo, Vinton and back. Just recently cleared all the weeds and brush. Looks Beautiful! Excellent place. Away from the traffic fumes and noise. I have been going there 4 years now. You even have three walking etc. choices You can walk the concrete path, atop the levee or even on the maintenance road below the levee.

We park at Valley Creek Park (plenty of parking) and walk towards Country Club and other times we bike it from there also towards under Artcraft to Boderland Bridge then Canutillo Bridge and all the way to Vinton Bridge and back. Its the perfect trail for walking,jogging,and biking.We use it alot and there are always people doing the same. Its the perfect trail just to get away. And its concrete all the way. And YES!! It does need to be cleaned up. The weed situation is overwhelming.

In terrible condition as of 9/2013. Weeds overgrown to 3', grass 8"-12" high, mosquito haven with such overgrowth on both sides of paved walk. Not anything as it used to be when was being taken care of! Wasted money spent on what could be a beautiful walk
