    Placitas Trail Work Day

    The Placitas Area Trail Association will be holding a trail work day this coming Sunday the 16th from 10am until 2pm. We will be doing two reroutes on a trail near the east trail head. The National Forest Service will be on hand 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. We hope to see you there!

    We flagged the reroutes today for the work tomorrow. It was a bit chilly, but the ground is moist and perfect to work in. It is expected to be chilly again tomorrow but with more sun. Come and help us make your trails better!

    Good job! Trail Work Day Complete!

    PATA had another trail workday Sunday December 16th. It was a cold and cloudy day with a bit of snow on the ground. Even with the nasty weather, more than 16 people showed up to do some serious trail work. With the help of Kerry Wood from the National Forest Service, we completed two trail reroutes of heavily eroded trail. We encountered one irate hiker just before we headed up the trail to start work. To their credit, after seeing the work we did they later apologized and complemented the trail reroutes. Very positive!

    Having rode the reroutes, I can honestly say they turned out great. The trail crew did an amazing job! Checkout the pictures below. The group picture is missing about half the crew as it was taken just before we packed up and a number had headed back a few minutes earlier . Of particular note is Jeff Watson who helped with the flagging the day before and Jim Dixon one of our original members.
