County Celebrates National Trails Day

In recognition of National Trails Day, Los Alamos County Recreation Leader Eric Hill hosts a booth Saturday afternoon at the Canyon Rim Trailhead. The Los Alamos County Fire Department issued Stage III Fire Restrictions Friday, which prohibits access to unpaved trail systems within the County; however, Hill pointed out that paved trails are still available for use. Local paved trails include the Canyon Rim Trail, La Mesa Trail near East Park and the paved area at Overlook Park in White Rock. Hill provided bottled water, otter pops, buttons and other items to trail users. He said this is the first year the County Community Services Department has offered a program to celebrate National Trails Days. Photo by Kirsten Laskey/
