The Prescription Trails Program (Rx Trails) developed a prescription tool and walking guide to increase walking and wheelchair rolling on suggested routes, targeting and promoting healthy lifestyle for families. 

Sedentary lifestyles contribute significantly to chronic disease and poor health outcomes. Rx Trails connects health care providers and their patients to walkable sites in the South Valley. The outcome is a healthier, happier society.

Prescription Trails Program major partners include: NM Health Care Takes on Diabetes, National Park Service, Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Mexico, City of Albuquerque, New Mexico State Parks,  Albuquerque Alliance for Active Living and Bernalillo County Open Space.

*Thank you Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Mexico for your generous donation to adopt Valle del Bosque as an Rx Trails. Your donation will go towards installing an interpretive sign at the property. 

Prescription Rx Walking Trails are at the following Bernalillo County Open Space properties:
