The Santa Fe Conservation Trust worked with Santa Fe County to produce an interpretive sign for placement at an overlook on the La Piedra Trail.  The sign points out the mountains and other land features in view and provides information on local history, flora, and fauna.

On June 5, as a celebration of National Trails Day, a community hike was organized to visit the sign, attended by County and City staff as well as the general public.  Santa Fe County provided sandwiches and drinks which were thoroughly enjoyed up at the overlook.
