Take a trip to Beanfield Mesa

-A A +A

Join Pajarito Environmental Education Center at 9:10 a.m. Oct. 27 for a hike across Beanfield Mesa. Living Treasure, author and local historian Dorothy Hoard will lead participants around the mesa top, past historic locations and to viewpoints.
Prior to 1943, two old roads were built to access a farm high atop Beanfield Mesa.  Located across Rendija Canyon, north of Barranca Mesa, the mesa featured a substantial line cabin (lost in the 2000 Cerro Grande fire).  
Those farmers tended crops on Beanfield Mesa, but the history of the mesa also includes sheep, cattle and logging. During the hike, Hoard will talk about this historic location and the importance of Veronica Springs, a welcome sight in dry times that probably fed a sawmill at one point.
This hike will loop around the mesa to include both roads and also check out two game pits — one probably real, the other suspicious. This is a moderate hike.
Some stretches are very rocky, though not particularly steep. Some parts of the route have no established trail.
Come experience the views and a historic area of Los Alamos. Meet at PEEC at 9:10 a.m. to carpool or at the trailhead at 9:30 a.m. Bring water and sunscreen. Free, no registration required.
