We celebrate National Trails Day, June 8, 2024 in Questa, in a festival event, alongside the Art Market, with live music, and a variety of homemade foods. Come walk the trail!

A free-standing self-guided walking tour that illustrates a microcosm of northern New Mexico history. The trail loops from our village’s main intersection (and sole traffic light) to our historic plaza. Start at the Welcome kiosk on the corner and follow the directional arrows. Long-lasting signs are now installed.

At times, we have celebrated National Trails Day on at a gathering on the site, with history-focused camaraderie, music, and insider guides, there to answer questions.

This year we will celebrate on Saturday, June 8, 2024, in combination with the Saturday Art Market. Expect great live music, homemade food, and local art & crafts, all from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Please use caution until new stairs can bridge the old stairs in the church parking lot, at stop #5. Explore all the research for a deeper understanding of many topics the trail’s signs introduce along with local memories.
