PEEC is offering Hiking Los Alamos 101. The class will meet 6-8 p.m. Mondays June 3-24.
This first session will take place in the PEEC classroom, where expert hiker Craig Martin will go over safety and comfort on the trail. He also will teach map-reading skills. After that, the group will meet at various trails for hikes.
Martin and others will be hike leaders, with interpreters from PEEC for hikes and a “last in line” person from the County Recreation Department.
This is a great opportunity for adults, especially those new to the area, to get to know the extensive network of trails that Los Alamos has to offer. The class is open to anyone who can hike two miles. The cost is $15 for all four classes, which includes a Sky Terrain map of Santa Fe, Bandelier and Los Alamos, as well as a 50 Hikes booklet.
Drop-ins are welcome ($5) if the maximum attendee limit has not been reached, but it is recommended that you register in advance.
