On May 25, 2009 (Memorial Day), I led an Outdoors Club hike in Del Dios Gorge. There are two fairly new trails in that area, the Del Dios Gorge Trail and the Santa Fe Valley Trail. Each is about two miles long and was unfinished.

We hiked both trails; I surveyed the Del Dios Gorge Trail only by distance. I surveyed the Santa Fe Valley Trail by latitude and longitude, and only that trail is plotted on the topo.
