Trail Use

Some LANL trails are open to the public whereas others are only open to LANL badge-holders.  Some trails allow dogs, horses, and bicycles while these are prohibited on other trails. It is your responsibility to understand the rules of a particular trail.

Trails are open from dawn to dusk, however trails and trail segments shown in red on trail maps are closed to all entry.

Hike open trails at your own risk; carry water, and beware of weather conditions, hazards, and wildlife.

Please leave no trace and pack out your trash. 

Trail Monitoring

LANL trails in the White Rock area (TAs 70/71) are actively patrolled by Bandelier National Monument rangers through an agreement between the National Park Service and the Department of Energy.

Other LANL trails may be monitored by the LANL Protective Force. 

You are required to acknowledge and comply with law enforcement requests and directions.
