Walk with local trail expert Craig Martin and visit the rock window on Saturday. This hike is about two miles round trip with around 400 feet of elevation gain.
To participate, register online at peecnature.org. Afterward, meet Martin and other hikers at 10:15 a.m. on Nov. 14. Bring water, snacks, hat, sunscreen and good hiking shoes or boots.
Martin is the former open space specialist for Los Alamos County. He is a writer, musician and avid hiker. His books such as “Los Alamos Place Names,” “Valle Grande, A History of the Baca Location No. 1” and “100 Hikes in New Mexico” have helped preserve the history of the area and acquaint people with the importance of the landscape and its uses. The new Los Alamos Trails app is a result of his years of exploring.
Hikers will meet at 10:15 a.m. Saturday at the Nature Center, 2600 Canyon Road and then carpool to Mitchell Trailhead. Registration is required. Attendance is $5 for PEEC members and $7 for non-members. Visit peecnature.org, email email@example.com, or call 662-0460.
