New Trails Coming to Mariposa in Rio Rancho

New Trails Coming to Mariposa in Rio Rancho

Posted on October 1, 2020

Yearning to enjoy more of the outdoors? Developers of Mariposa are working to expand the community trail systems within Mariposa. The community already offers nearly 360 degrees of breathtaking views, with access to millions of acres of protected land. New trails within Mariposa are anticipated to lead to the Mariposa Preserve, a separate entity of 2,200 acres of dedicated open space owned by The Albuquerque Academy.

Here’s a map detailing the area.

Several Mariposa trails are designed as closed loops within Mariposa neighborhoods. There is also a rim trail under design that is planned to travel along the Preserve edge, starting at the Community Center.

As you can see, Mariposa is the perfect center point for those seeking outdoor adventure. We look forward to these new additions for our residents ready to enjoy the great outdoors in Rio Rancho, NM.
