The weir: Before

With help from the The Nature Conservancy, the Santa Fe Fat Tire Society, and other GUSTO partners, SFCT was happy to open the Cerro Gordo Trailhead Connector on behalf of City Parks the evening of Tues., April 17.

The placement of a footbridge over a weir on the Santa Fe River, under the direction of Brent Bonwell and Henry Lanman of SFFTS, marked the completion of this long-awaited connection between the Central and South sections of Dale Ball Trails.  Now the general public does not have to walk or ride in the street anymore!

Along with Dog Park Connector opening in March, this project makes two new GUSTO Connectors completed in two months!
