Get Outside

With nearly 60 miles of County trails, climbing walls, top-tier mountain biking, and so much more, the Pajarito Plateau is a great place to explore the outdoors of Northern New Mexico.

Join PEEC for a hike or trip, start exploring the trails in your backyard with the Passport to the Pajarito Plateau, or just stop by to tell us about the latest adventures you’ve had outdoors. View our upcoming hikes and trips here.

Passport to the Pajarito Plateau

Explore our beautiful trails with our popular Passport program. Los Alamos County, Bandelier, the Valles Caldera, and local Forest Service land all have so many great trails, and now, thanks to support from some generous sponsors, we’re giving you a way to discover them.

Los Alamos Trails App

PEEC’s trails app allows you to search for a nearby trail that fits your hiking criteria. The app profiles dozens of trips in Los Alamos County, Bandelier National Monument, and the Valles Caldera National Preserve.

Northern New Mexico Peak Challenge

Take your adventures to new levels — literally! Join the Northern NM Peak Challenge and climb seven of our state’s iconic summits. This program is a collaboration between PEEC and the Los Alamos Mountaineers.
