SFCT Trail Events in 2014

Dale Ball Re-Route south of Upper Canyon Rd., Oct. 2014

2014 was a great first year for activities under our “Trail Volunteer Coordinator” agreement with the City.  Starting with Dale Ball Day in March, SFCT organized over thirty trail maintenance, construction, or assessment events, resulting in over 660 volunteer work hours dedicated to city trails, including Dale Ball Trails (north, middle and south sections), La Tierra Trails, and the Camino de Cruz Blanca Trail.  We also organized three more celebrations of our trails for Bike to Work Week in May and on National Trails Day in June.

A big “thank you” goes to our dedicated volunteer base, especially members of the Trails Alliance of Santa Fe and the Santa Fe Fat Tire Society, as well as City staff, elected officials, the Bicycle and Trails Advisory Committee, and many other partners supporting this community effort.  We had a celebration in the field (literally) and recognition of city trail volunteer efforts in late October.  The final tallies for 2014, and recognition of outstanding individual city trail volunteers, are now available online!

SFCT also kicked off maintenance work under our adoption the Atalaya Trail this year, on behalf of the Santa Fe National Forest, collaborated with Santa Fe County on Dale Ball Day and on the La Piedra Trail, and organized field trips supported by the Gimbel Foundation to bring young Santa Feans out to our trail system.

The links below describe how each event in 2014 went.  For information on upcoming trail events, see SFCT’s Events page or take a look at the TAOSF calendar.
