Open Space & Trails

Los Alamos County Open Space is open to non-motorized use only. Hiking, running, horse travel, and mountain biking are permitted on County trails.

Management of County-owned lands is guided by the Open Space Management Plan. The plan’s purpose is to identify key features of open space that make Los Alamos a desirable place to live or visit and to outline ways to protect those features.

The features identified in the plan are:

  • Los Alamos County Trail Network
  • Vistas and viewpoints
  • Natural resources
  • Cultural and historical resources
