Saturday: 2nd Annual Take A Kid Hiking Day
Two Featured Walks This Year: Cieneguilla Petroglyphs and Vamonos: Railyard Park
Santa Fe, NM – After a successful and fun event on the Dale Ball Trail system last year, the Santa Fe Conservation Trust and the City of Santa Fe are partnering once again this year for Take A Kid Hiking Day, this Saturday, June 9th. These free, family-friendly events do not require any registration. Water, snacks, hiking maps, stickers and prizes will be provided for participants.
Walkers and hikers can strike out on their own or join a guided tour led by knowledgeable locals at both locations.
The La Cieneguilla Petroglyphs hikes will be taking place from 9:00am – 11:00am. The Vamonos: Railyard Park Family Walk will begin at 9:00am and last approximately an hour.
Information on both hikes, as well as contact information for hike organizers, is available online.
For the Railyard Park Vamonos walk: https://sfct.org/event/family-walk/?instance_id=146. The walk will depart from the Park at 740 Cerrillos Road headed for the Acequia Trail.
And for the Cieneguilla Petroglyphs walk: https://sfct.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/Take-a-Kid-Hiking-Day-2018.jpg. The petroglyphs are located on Bureau of Land Management land very close to Santa Fe, off of Paseo Real. To get there, drive west on Airport Road from the 599 intersection for 3.3 miles, and look for the gravel parking area with a BLM sign on the west side of the Road.
Take a Kid Hiking Day was the inspiration of Elaine Pinkerton, author of “Santa Fe on Foot,” and is supported by resolution sponsored by District 1 City Councilor Renee Villarreal.
