  1. Trail is now partially clear after the recent snow, but very icy in places under the trees - caution! I have not been walking the extension since the snow.

  2. We like to take visitors on this trail, starting from the west end at East Park. Beyond the east end of the paved trail at Nambe Loop, we continue on the original trail through the woods to the gravel service road behind (north of) the airport hangars and a maintenance building. There, two ancient catwalks stick out into space, and even without daring the scary catwalks everyone has a clear view of the Pueblo Canyon trail way down below. The airport main building has a public water fountain and bathrooms.

  3. The extension of the Los Alamos Mesa Trail, the Pueblo Canyon Rim Trail, has been cleared and improved by the Los Alamos/Española Youth Conservation Corps. The crew cut back brush, improved retaining walls, and widened the tread. The trail was extended to the Pajarito Cliffs site and makes a connection to the Camp Hamilton Trail.
