Finding a place for a weekend hike or an evening mountain bike ride around Los Alamos just got a whole lot easier. Local outdoor writer Craig Martin has published Los Alamos Trails, a guide to the more than 200 miles of dirt roads and pathways in the Los Alamos area. Los Alamos Trails covers the hiking, biking, and cross-country skiing trails in and around Los Alamos and White Rock. Ninety routes are described in detail, including the urban trail network in the Pueblo Canyon area, the roads and trails on the mesas west of town, the Guaje Canyon area, and the foot trails in White Rock Canyon. The suitable modes of transport are given for each trip, along with length, elevation gain, difficulty and seasons of use. For hikers, richly detailed trail logs describe paths through stately conifer forests, wide open mesa tops, and the rugged, spectacular White Rock Canyon. Mountain bikers will find a wide variety of trips from single-track adventures to easy dirt roads. Martin also suggests which of the hiking trails are best for a trip with children. Both locals and visitors will find this book indispensable for planning outdoor adventures on the Pajarito Plateau and in the Jemez Mountains.About the Author:
