Placitas Area Trail Association
Hi Fellow Trail Users,
About 6 months ago a number of riders that use the trails in Placitas formed the Placitas Area Trail Association (PATA). PATA has been hard at work mapping the trails, working with the National Forest Service (NFS), and building membership. Currently we have about 60 registered users, but we want everyone here to join us as well. A large well organized association will let us get things done the way the trail users want them done.
Placitas is a complex area with a variety of trail users, wilderness areas, and land use issues. PATA will be there to make sense of that complexity. PATA has been assisting the NFS in developing a trail plan and that has been very successful. We hope a trail plan will be approved in the near future. Prior to the approval of the official trail plan, the NFS has authorized some critical trail maintenance. The trail maintenance is needed due to a 50 year flood in the Northeast section of trails that occurred this summer. We completed the first of 4 projects on the 18th, see pics below.
We will be completing project #2 on Sunday December 16th and we invite everyone to join us. Use this link for more info. Trail Reroutes | placitasareatrail.org
