SFNF News:
SANTA FE  The Santa Fe National Forest (SFNF) hopes to harness public passion for outdoor recreation to develop a master plan for Forest Service trails in Los Alamos County. 
Members of the public are invited to share their ideas and priorities for an integrated trail system at a meeting 7-8:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 4 at Fuller Lodge in Los Alamos.
The discussion will focus on the development of a master plan to preserve, maintain and provide public access to SFNF trails in and around Los Alamos.
“Trails connect us with each other, with our communities and with our public lands,” Española District Ranger Sandy Hurlocker said.  “The more input we receive from people who value and support their trails on public lands, the stronger our master plan for Los Alamos County will be.”
Topics to be discussed at the meeting will include using partnerships to fund and maintain trails, preventing conflicts between different user groups, rules and regulations for trails in habitat for threatened and endangered species, forest plan revision and volunteer opportunities.
For additional information about the public meeting or the Los Alamos County master plan, please contact Lynn Bjorklund, Recreation Program Manager on the Española Ranger District, at or 505.753.7331.
