Bordered by the Rio Grande and the Sandida Mountains, Peralta, NM has a lot more to offer than simply being just a thirty-minute drive from Albuquerque. Peralta’s motto is "Preserving the Past for Future Generations", and it shows -- several churches in town are simply stunning examples of southwest architecture, and the small city’s downtown area was based around an historic hacienda that dates back to 1874. Unfortunately, there aren’t any veterinary clinics in Peralta, but you’ll find plenty of places to care for your buddy in nearby Los Lunas.

With no designated dog runs or community parks in town, you might be forgiven for thinking that Peralta isn’t the most fur-friendly place, but you and your buddy are sure to dig up something to do! Heritage Park, on the border of Peralta and Valencia, is a fantastic spot for a leashed walk, and boasts several dog-friendly hiking trails for you and your pup to sniff and explore. Right next to the park, you’ll find Ribs Hickory Pitt BBQ, a grrreat locally owned joint that serves up the best in sticky, smoky goodness, and welcomes wagging tails at outdoor tables. And don’t worry -- you and your pooch will find plenty of off-leash exercise opportunities just a short drive away!

    #1 East Los Lunas

    For dog-friendly hiking, look no fur-ther than Riverside Park in Los Lunas! The main 2.5-mile trail only has a moderate incline, so it’s suitable for everyone from the fittest furry friend to the most committed couch pup-tato! If you and your pup are looking for a bit more of a challenge, don’t worry -- just north of Riverside Park, you’ll find an entrance to the North Bosque Trail system. Remember to bring your own water and bags! For doggy dining, check out Burritos Alinstante. This locally owned restaurant is famed for its breakfast burritos, and caters to canines outside.

    #2 Westgate Heights

    Westgate Community Park in Albuquerque might be a bit of a drive from Peralta, but it’d be a huge faux paw not to visit! The off-leash area is huge, and there’s a separate small dog area, so your pooch can play and socialize be they big or little. Bags and water are provided, so all you need to do is bring your pup, their favorite toys, and your enthusiasm! Careful, though -- the park isn’t that well-shaded, so you might want to give it a miss in the middle of the day.

    #3 South Valley

    The Passeo de Bosse Trail is a very pawpular route with Albuquerque dog owners! This flat, twenty-mile trail runs from central ABQ all the way to Corrales, passing by stunning natural bosque forests, several small towns, a winery, and a lavender farm along the way! You and your pooch can also see some scenic waterscapes along the way. Remember to bring your own bags to keep this beautiful stretch clean, and watch out for mountain bikers! There are many entrances to this trail, so it can be as short or as long a walk as you want, but you’ll find plenty of parking in South Valley.

    #4 Barelas

    Make no bones about it -- your pooch will love a visit to the Rio Grande Triangle Park in Barelas! The small dog area isn’t as big as the one in Westgate, but there’s still plenty of space for your pooch to run about and tire themselves out. There are logs and boulders to climb and jump over, and bags and water are provided. As an added bonus, there’s plenty of seats for tired owners, so you can take a load off if you feel like your buddy has been walking you!

    #5 Old Town

    If you and your dog are looking for something different to do, why not consider taking a tour of Old Town Albuquerque? There are many walking tours available to take you and your pup around all the sites of historical interest, and most welcome wagging tails as long as they’re leashed. Or, if you and your pooch are all walked out, you two can take a narrated tour on an open air trolley! Arrive at Romero Street after dark and you may be able to catch the furrific Ghost Tour for a guided look at the city’s spookier side.
