Albuquerque Open Space Los Duendes Trail Loop at Golden Open Space.
The Golden Open Space is rapidly becoming a great destination for Mt. Biking. This non-motorized, non-wilderness trail system is another fine example of the type of trails the Albuquerque Open Space (AOS) is providing to the residents of Bernalillo County.
Jim Sattler (AOS Trail Supervisor) has designs that will result in close to 15 miles of trails in this stacked loop system. We have about 6 miles of Trail in and our objective for this year is to descend into the Rio Seco Canyon and link up with the existing trail coming from the North.
Jim has asked that folks register with him for this event. Please send him an email at JSattler@cabq.gov if you plan to attend.
We will be registering folks on Saturday, May 18th at 8:45AM and getting started by 9:00AM sharp. Please make sure you are there on time so that we can get to the work zone efficiently.
As with all Trail Building events, please bring plenty of water, food, appropriate work clothes/hat, hard soled shoes and above all a great attitude. And thanks for helping out, without your support, building of new trails like these would not be possible!
HOW TO GET THERE
Here is a Google Map of the Trail Work location. This is NOT the official Golden Open Space Trailhead. We are meeting on Punta Linda Rd. to work down towards the canyon. Parking is limited so try to carpool if possible.
And keep your eyes open for the mysterious Los Duendes, trail-builiding creatures that local author Stephen Ausherman made famous in his book "60 Hikes within 60 Miles: Albuquerque". They live out here!
