NEXT SCHEDULED TRAIL CLEANUP :
Sometime in November 2013 - Watch this space for details!
ALBUQUERQUE ROAD RUNNERS ADOPTED TRAIL
Traversing it doesn’t provide as tough a workout as climbing the La Luz Trail, but ARR's “other” adopted trail offers easy access to petroglyphs, radio-controlled model airplanes, and (extinct) volcanoes. This stretch of bike/jogging trail starts across the street from the Unser-and-Western-Trail entrance to Petroglyphs National Monument and heads north for about a mile to Dellyne.
Our semiannual trail cleanups start at 8:30 am on a scheduled Saturday morning. We meet at the bend where Atrisco headed north becomes Legends headed east, which seems to be a convenient place for parking our cars (for those of us who don't walk or jog over) while we walk the trail, transferring accumulated litter to trash bags.
This gives you the choice of ending your early-morning workout at the meeting place and using litter collection as a cooldown activity, or starting your late-morning jog in the pleasant Petroglyphs area after having contributed your efforts on behalf of the environment and your Club. Water, gloves, hats, a few “grabbers,” and (naturally) trash bags provided.
Contact: Dick Harris 505-268-5747 (H) or 505-450-3643 (cell phone, morning of the cleanup) .
To reach the meeting place take Coors Blvd. to just before (if headed south) or just after (if headed north) St. Pius X High School, turn west on Western Trails, then north on Atrisco Drive NW until it begins to turn to the east. (This is also the point at which it comes very close to Unser Blvd.) Park along the street close to the bend.
