Trail plan ready for review

-A A +A
By Arin McKenna


In recent meetings about “branding” Los Alamos, the county’s trail system was mentioned repeatedly and passionately as an asset. 

With approximately 60 miles of formal trails and 40 miles of informal trails, the system is double the size of Santa Fe’s and far beyond the scope of most communities.

However, the system has some noticeable weaknesses, such as a lack of signage and poor connectivity. In the first step toward correcting some of those flaws, the county’s Parks Division retained the Trail Solutions program of the International Mountain Bike Association to assess the network and develop a Community Trail Plan.

Trail Solutions visited Los Alamos in December to travel the trails and meet with eight focus groups representing hikers, runners, bicyclists, equestrians, businesses, neighborhoods, and other interested groups. 

The plan evaluates the current conditions and layout of the network, and makes recommendations for specific projects to improve not only individual trails but also the organization of the entire network.
