Trail Work - Arroyo Chamiso Trail

Arroyo Chamiso at Camino Carlos Rey (May 6, 2014)
Took the little one out for a run recently, cruising the Arroyo Chamiso trail since it's flat and right out the back door. In a stroke of irony, the paved trail I never run on because there's a perfectly runnable arroyo 30ft to the south, suddenly became unpaved. It seems the oldest trail in Santa Fe's urban trail system (1994) was scheduled for repair and re-paving.

I've noticed several other ongoing projects including erosion control at Arroyo Chamiso and Gail Ryba (at the underpass), erosion control on the Rail Trail at the county line (I-25 underpass), and the improvements at the La Tierra underpass to Ortiz Park.

I know a new bike lane is scheduled to be added to Old Santa Fe Trail soon (El Gancho Way to Zia Rd), and the missing stretch of the Arroyo Chamiso at Cerrillos Rd will be added soon along with the new business and residential developments going in there. There's also ongoing planning and design work on a proposed new alignment for the Arroyo Hondo Trail south of town (NM 14 to Richards Rd) which will eventually close a loop with Arroyo Chamiso and the Rail Trail. Good stuff.
