Nambe Lake Trail 2020

On Wednesday 10 volunteers from NMVFO joined Jennifer to close off user trails on the Nambe Lake Trail #400 in the Pecos Wilderness, which steeply climbs from Winsor Trail up to Nambe Lake.

From Winsor Trailhead at Santa Fe Ski Area, we hiked 1.2 miles along Winsor Trail, keeping safe social distancing.

We cut dead tree limbs to block numerous false trails criss-crossing Nambe Lake Trail.

I stayed with the lower group, and did not make it all the way up to the lake, but did see a pleasant meadow, which seemed like an old lake that had been filled in.

Many thanks to Jennifer, Jenny, Chris, Craig, Josh, Kitri, Brian, Brian the Younger, Dennis, and Mike for an invigorating day.
