La Llorona trail stroll along the Rio Grande

The La Llorona trail is a flat, gravel-bed trail along the Rio Grande. The portion we'll be hiking starts at Calle de Norte in Mesilla, and goes up to the end of the the Triviz–La Llorona connector trail (the one that follows Alameda Arroyo), which we have hiked a few times in the past few months.

This trail is completely flat (i.e. easy). Consider bringing weights, etc to make sure you have a workout, and please bring a flashlight (I don't plan on using them but it can't hurt to be prepared).

DISTANCE is ~9.17 mi, out and back.

ELEVATION GAIN is essentially zero, unfortunately

FEES: None. Of course, if you carpool, please compensate your driver for gas!

DURATION: 2–3 hours. Should finish by 9:00–9:30 pm.

PET FRIENDLY? Yes. Bring a muzzle (you shouldn't need be told to bring a proper leash), and if you'd like to unleash, ask others before you do so.

SKILL LEVEL is unbelievably beginner friendly. Please find a way to make it more difficult (weights, etc).

TERRAIN paved asphalt trail as well as a sections of gravel-bed trail.


AFTERWARDS we'll try to go Baskin Robbin's dollar scoop night ($1.50 adult scoops, $1 kids-size scoops, any of their 31 flavors!). The Baskin Robbins is at Solano Square Shopping Center (Solano and Missouri). See map ([masked]°N,[masked]°W (see on Google Maps, OpenStreetMap, USGS topo map)). Alternatively, people always talk about dinner.

MEET at:

• 6:15 pm, La Llorona trailhead on Picacho Avenue. See directions above; GPS: Google Maps, OpenStreetMap, USGS topo map)

      Sorry for missing it, guys. We've had some health issues in our family, and aren't able to make it out any more for a few weeks.

      For today, yes. I haven't been by the other trailhead to see if they are done with construction. Also, I was supposed to change the meeting time to 5:45p but did not get a chance. Everyone's OK with meeting at the as-advertised 6:15p?

      I've injured my achilles tendon so I'm going to sit it out this week. Everyone have fun!
