Fall Hike in the Bosque

  • Monataño and Coors, west side

We’ll hike the west side stretch of the Bosque from Montaño to the Oxbow (approx. one and a half miles). The stand of Cottonwoods behind the Bosque School should be beautiful this time of year. Then we’ll take a side trail to the river and talk briefly about the benefits of the the new embayment installed by the Corps of Engineers. Then on to the new pond at the edge of the Oxbow. There we will talk in detail about the Corps project there and the importance of the Oxbow and it’s place in the Rio Grande Valley State Park. 

Meet: Parking lot just east of the SE corner of Montaño and Coors.

Bring: Dress for cool fall weather and bring what is necessary for a two hour hike.
