The Tuff Riders group has adopted a section of a trail in the Santa Fe National Forest. As trail adopters, the Tuff Riders will maintain the trail by trimming bushes and clearing downed trees, building water bars, and otherwise committing to trail work on this section in coordination with the Forest Service. Currently, the Tuff Riders lead monthly trail work crews, and will continue working on other trails beyond their adopted section of Perimeter Trail.

“Other trails that still need TLC include Guaje Ridge, Pajarito Trail, and Los Alamos Canyon Trail,” USFS District Volunteer Coordinator Jennifer Sublett said, encouraging others to adopt a trail. “Basically, many trails are in need of maintenance so whatever you choose to adopt will be a huge benefit for the trail and people will certainly appreciate your efforts.”

If you’d like to volunteer for trail work, the USFS trains and leads trail work sessions. A volunteer agreement is required for adopting trails or for any trail work on the Santa Fe National Forest. Contact jasublett@fs.fed.us for more information.
