The La Vega Loop trails are a series of trails that connect to La Vega meadow, at the foot of Santa Fe Baldy. They include Lower Nambe, Upper Namber, Rio Nambe and Winsor trails.

The trail work is pretty simple. We will assess the directional signs at each junction and at La Vega and we will do maintenance on one or more of them as time permits. We might replace a pole, replace a sign, or replace both.

Trail stewardship should not be drudgery. This outing will be mostly hiking (approximately 8-10 miles) with some work along the way. The work will range from easy to moderate. Join in and do the task that best matches your ability and desire.

This event is one in a series of service projects organized by the New Mexico Wilderness Alliance, in collaboration with the Santa Fe National Forest, and partially funded by a generous grant from REI, who encourages the local community to engage in trail stewardship activities in New Mexico's Wilderness and roadless areas.
