Trail markers becoming a reality

-A A +A

County > Feedback from public meeting will be incorporated into signage plan

By Arin McKenna

Trail users tired of getting lost on Los Alamos County’s meshwork of trails will get some relief as early as this summer. That is when Open Space Specialist Craig Martin plans to install trail signage pilot projects on the central trail network running from the aquatic center to the golf course and in White Rock Canyon.
“The lack of signs has kept me from trying out different trails because I am unable to know if I am on the right trail or have wandered off the path,” commented a typical respondent to last year’s Los Alamos County Open Forum on the trail network.
Similar comments were heard at a public meeting on trail signage conducted last Wednesday.
“I just want signs on Pueblo so I don’t get lost,” Becky Scarborough said. “Whatever Craig does will be better than what we’ve got now.”
Others were concerned that the signage might be short-lived.
“People will go around a trail and tear things out, because they think the trails are theirs,” Mike Wheeler said.
A minority of the comments Martin has received reflect that animosity toward the signage.
