The canyons and mesas in and around Los Alamos are linked by over 150-miles of developed trails. Hikers, runners, horseback riders, mountain bikers, and other trail users delight in the variety of trails from which to choose. The trails offer a quick escape from the hectic pace in the town, a route to commute to work, an easy stroll or a physical challenge, and a chance to observe wildlife or to soak in impressive views.
