    Idea! Placitas Trail Work

    Placitas Area Trail Association will be holding a trail work day Saturday the 30th from 10am until 3pm. We will be doing a short reroute on a trail near the east trail head, do more rehab work on the old trail we rerouted during our last workday, and install additional rock gabions on a section of the Strip Mine trail. The National Forest Service will be back to help out and will provide hard hats, tools, and gloves if you do not already have them. Please bring water, pack a lunch, and come decked out in long pants and boots. We’ll meet at the east trail head as seen on the map below. If you have questions please contact me at tim.garner@placitasareatrail.org. Hope to see you there!

    We had a great turnout for the trail workday. We completed everything we planned to do. The main thing we did was to rehab a section of trail that had been rerouted earlier. While that might not be as exciting building new trail, it shows the correct approach to creating a sustainable trail system. Especially in an environmentally sensitive area like Placitas, where a single tire track can last for years. We also did a short reroute and put in additional rock gabions to stabilize a section of trail. Thanks to everyone that showed up to lend a hand!
