This is one of my favorite hikes in Los Alamos. We will meet at the trailhead at 8 am, about 1.5 miles north of the intersection of NM 501 and NM 4.The second half of the hike has a completely different feel than the first. It is a steady climb up 1700 ft over 4 miles to the rim of Valle Grande, and then we return along the same trail for a total of about 8 miles round trip.  It isn’t completely shaded, be prepared with sunscreen. Bring a hat, lunch, and plenty of water. There might be some rain, so bring rain gear and layers. It should take about 4 hours. 


If you would like to come, please email David at


In the event of an injury, I plan to: return to the trailhead

The nearest hospital is: Los Alamos Medical Center

If conditions turn poor right before the event will start, we plan to:

Bail out by email or phone call
