Hiking along the The Rio Grande Bosque Trail is a favorite of many furry friends. The nearest trailhead is 1.5 miles from the Mauger Estate at the Biopark, Tingley Beach (across the street from Bio Park) is also a popular spot to hop on the trail. The trail offers a nice shaded walk along the river under the huge cottonwood trees, or if its a chilly day and you're looking for the sun there is a secondary trail that follows the irrigation ditch with views of cottonwood forest and some unique homes along the river. Watch for local wildlife! If your lucky you will often find beavers, squirrels, lizards, many species of birds, and in the evenings you can sometimes spot bats, porcupines, skunks, fox, and the illusive coyote.
Hiking in the Sandia foothills showcases the desert landscape. La Luz trail is the most popular (and difficult) of them all, but offers the most reward with its panoramic views and diverse landscape. Picture below was taken from the top of Sandia Crest. This can be accessed from the trails below or you can drive to the crest and have many trailhead options to these breath taking views.
The Petroglyphs National Monument is another popular and fun adventure for guests and dogs. This site features designs and symbols carved into volcanic rocks by Native Americans and Spanish settlers 400 to 700 years ago. If its a hot day make sure you protect your pups feet from the hot sand.
PET FRIENDLY RESTAURANTS
Slate Street Cafe, just a 5 minute walk North from the Mauger has a nice pet friendly patio.

While Albuquerque is a “leash law” city, there are several off leash dog parks. The closest to us is Rio Grande Triangle Park at 301 McKnight Ave. NW (1.3miles). Roosevelt Park is another great option and also has an amazing frisbee golf course. We do encourage all of our guests to be mindful and pay attention to other dog owners and their pets to gauge the safety of your fur baby. Unfortunately not all people are responsible dog owners. We welcome all guest, including your four-legged friends here at Mauger Estate Bed and Breakfast. They’ll thank you for it while having the time and space as they play in the outdoor fenced doggie play area.
While most of the breweries in town allow dogs on their patios here is a list of our favorites that are in and around the neighborhood: Marble Brewery, Boese Brothers, Dialogue Brewery, Tractor Brewery on 4th street and in Nob Hill, La Cumbre Brewery, The Canteen, Red Door Brewing, Bow and Arrow Brewing, and Bosque Brewing with a great eatery as well.
