Bike club adopts popular local trail

-A A +A

On June 1, a new trail sign was planted at the intersection of Mitchell and Perimeter trails. The Los Alamos Tuff Riders Mountain Bike Club coordinated the Perimeter Trail adoption with the Santa Fe National Forest.

As trail adopters, the Tuff Riders will maintain the trail by trimming bushes and clearing downed trees, building water bars, and otherwise committing to trail work on this section in coordination with the Forest Service.

Currently, the Tuff Riders lead monthly trail work crews, and will continue working on other trails beyond their adopted section of Perimeter Trail.

“Other trails that still need TLC include Guaje Ridge, Pajarito Trail, and Los Alamos Canyon Trail,” USFS District Volunteer Coordinator Jennifer Sublett said.

To volunteer for trail work, the USFS trains and leads trail work sessions. A volunteer agreement is required for adopting trails or for any trail work on the Santa Fe National Forest. Contact jasublett@fs.fed.us for more information.
