National Trails Day set for Saturday

The Los Alamos National Laboratory Trails Working group and the Volunteer Task Force will sponsor the 11th National Trails Day volunteer work party Saturday.

This year’s project will focus on the reconstruction of a historic switchback on the Deadman’s Trail in Los Alamos Canyon.

The trail was named by students at the Los Alamos Ranch School after homesteader Antonio Sanchez was killed by a rockfall while building the trail. The rockwork in need of repair has served as part of this important canyon crossing since the trail was built more than 80 years ago.

“Many of us enjoy the trails around Los Alamos, but few realize the hours of work required to maintain the trail system,” said Craig Martin, Los Alamos County Open Space specialist. “Most of the work is done by volunteers. If every trail user gave four hours per year to trail maintenance work, the community trail network would be in a much better condition.”

Volunteers should meet at the upper parking area at the Department of Energy Headquarters off Trinity Drive just east of the Los Alamos Medical Center at 8:30 a.m. Saturday.
