Students and parents from Camino Real Academy enjoy Dale Ball Trails – South on a field trip last fall. School field trips will run again in April and May, with transportation costs generously covered by the S.L. Gimbel Foundation.

Join SFCT and partners in a celebration of Dale Ball’s legacy by taking your kid (or your partner, or a friend) for a hike on Dale Ball Trails.  We will gather once again back at the Corral (“Sierra del Norte”) trailhead on Hyde Park Rd.  After a brief reflection on the lasting value of preserving our community’s open space and trails, around 1:30 we will let our feet do the walking, and hit the trails.

Pick up a copy of the newest edition of the Santa Fe Foothill Trails map, grab some goodies, and go!  Just remember to bring a water bottle, sun protection, and sensible hiking shoes or boots, and be prepared to bundle up with a warm hat, gloves, and an extra top layer (just in case).

Some of us will hike a variation on the Dale Ball North loop, with a visit to Santa Fe County’s La Piedra Open Space, which provides access to the Little Tesuque Creek and beyond to the Santa Fe National Forest.  How far you go in that direction is entirely up to you, but all are welcome to experience how the Dale Ball Trails and the La Piedra Trail now “connect the city to the sky”!
