ANNIVERSARY TRAIL:

Anniversary Trail begins at the east end of Los Alamos and offers spectacular views over the Rio Grande Valley.

Start at the water tank across N.M. 502 from Eastgate Industrial Park at the Los Alamos/Santa Fe county line sign. Hike up the road to the ridge. The moderate, 1.5 miles one way trail goes east.

It is on bedrock with parts of a prehistoric trail still visible. Keep an eye on young children because the trail is close to the cliff edge in a few places.

Hikers also may start at the gate where N.M. 502 starts down the hill. A level, abandoned road leads to the point of the mesa where a nice bench looks out over spectacular views in all directions.
