Trails status after Friday’s flooding: Open Space Specialist Craig Martin reports that nothing is closed, but there are lots of repairs needed, particularly on the Forest Service trails along West Jemez Road.
By Wednesday evening, volunteers hope to have the hazardous sections of Forest Service trails re-routed. Volunteers will be working on Water Canyon trails starting Wednesday evening and hope to have most of that trail fixed by early next week.
The only major effect on the County network of trails is the road in Pueblo Canyon – for mountain biking fans, be advised that road is washed out and impassable on a bike.
Beyond that, the County commends to Craig Martin who has been very busy checking out all trails and was a one-man show cleaning out the debris that threatened the little bridge in Acid Canyon. There are many repairs to be done, but Martin said he has not seen anything unsafe or impassable so far on the County trails.
Anyone out on the trails this week who spots something that appears unsafe, or, wishing to volunteering to help with trails restoration, contact martin at the Parks Office at 662-8159.
