Henry Lanman pauses to let one last hiker go under the tree before it is removed.

De-berming a spot well up Atalaya Mountain that not many volunteer crews get up to.










On May 30, the Trails Program Manager met with four volunteers to resume trail maintenance work on the Atalaya Trail, which we adopted on behalf of the Santa Fe National Forest in 2014.  Thanks to certified sawyer Henry Lanman we were able to remove fallen trees near the top of the Atalaya that had resulted in several communications from concerned citizens.  While we were up there, we also pruned branches and de-bermed gully-prone trail treads where we could.

Volunteer Larry Prescott lends a hand.
