National Trails Day, Questa History Walk
Saturday, June 2nd, 2018, 10:30am
Not all trails are in the woods! Join local historian Flavio Cisneros for a walk of the Questa History & Community Trail. A 5000-year timeline highlights rare geologic features, Hispano and multi-cultural settlements, Native life and conflicts, frontier religious devotion, orchards and arts. Discover a microcosm of northern New Mexico history on a .6m loop.
This inaugural walk is a chance for residents and visitors to offer feedback and questions about each topic highlighted, and each trail surface proposed. This, prior to the final, permanent structures being built in 2019.
Meet at the plazuela at Questa’s traffic light, corner of hwy. 522 & 38. FREE
