North Beach is in Alameda, north of Albuquerque. This is not an official spot for nude bathers. Don't flaunt nudity here, especially in the area to the north of North Beach. Walk well beyond clothed bathers before stripping. From the junction of Interstates 25 and 40 in Albuquerque, go north on I-25 about 6.5 miles and take Exit 233. Head west on State Route 528 for about 3 miles. Just past the intersection with South Rio Grande Boulevard, turn left into the parking lot where the sign says "Alameda/Rio Grande Open Space. Take the asphalt path to the right from the parking lot, cross under the bridge, and then go left over the bridge that crosses a small canal. When you get to an open area, head to the right on the path near the river. Soon you will come to a sandy beach called North Beach. This is the nicest beach area, so of course, limited to clothed bathers. Continue down the lesser worn trail where you'll cross through a metal and cable barricade several times. In a few minutes, you'll come to sandy areas on the river which is the gay nude area.
