SANTA FE, N.M. — Officials are working to link the historic El Camino Real de Tierra Adentro trail to a wider network of trails in the Santa Fe area.
The Santa Fe New Mexican reports that the Royal Road of the Interior Lands is set to be part of a new 15-mile trail linking the Santa Fe River trail to the Municipal Recreation Complex and to other recreation sites.
Santa Fe Conservation Trust Trails Program Manager Tim Rogers says once the new additions are complete, people will be able to travel from downtown Santa Fe to Diablo Canyon on bike or foot.
The trail project costs $4.3 million, most of which is coming from the Federal Lands Access Program of the Federal Highway Administration. Santa Fe County and the city of Santa Fe also contributed.
