The City Trail Volunteer Coordinator met with two volunteers from the Santa Fe Fat Tire Society (SFFTS) and archaeologist Stephen Post, also acting as a volunteer, at La Tierra Trails the morning of Nov. 5. The task at hand was to set up T-posts provided by the City Parks Department in order to mark off three archaeological sites identified by Mr. Post under a contract with SFFTS. These posts will serve to protect the sites during construction in Spring 2015 of a purpose-built, one-way bicycle “Flow Trail.”
This specialized trail will be designed by consultants from the International Mountain Biking Association’s “Trail Solutions” team, with financial support from SFFTS as well as the City of Santa Fe, through the Bicycle and Trails Advisory Committee (BTAC). Thanks to everyone who is supporting this effort to bring more kinds of wonderful trails to our area!
