When Los Alamos County first approached the Pajarito Environmental Education Center with the idea of offering a Hiking Los Alamos 101 series, to introduce long-term residents and newcomers to the trails around Los Alamos, PEEC staff questioned whether there would be enough interest in such a program. What they discovered was that there is a huge demand for exploring the history, geography and flora of the trails and more than anything, just becoming confident to explore the trails on one’s own.
So, PEEC is once again offering the series, which begins Monday and runs every Monday evening thereafter through June.
The series kicks off with a classroom session from 6-8 p.m. The session will take place in the PEEC classroom, where Open Space Specialist Craig Martin will go over safety and comfort on the trail, as well as map-reading skills.
On June 16, geologist Patrick Rowe will take the group on a hike down the Blue Dot Trail in White Rock Canyon. During this session, participants will get a hands-on perspective of the geologic formation of the Pajarito Plateau from approximately 13 million years ago until now, with a focus on the Bandelier Tuffs created by the Valle and Toledo Calderas and the Basalt flows of the Cerro del Rio.
