About this Location

The Quemazon Trailhead is located on the edge of the Western Area neighborhood. It is the launching point for the Quemazon Nature Trail, the Satch Cowan Trail, and further away adventures via the Quemazon Trail. About the first mile of this area is located on Los Alamos County open space and beyond that point is the Santa Fe National Forest.

From 15th Street and Central Avenue in downtown Los Alamos, head south on 15th. Turn right at the traffic signal at Trinity Drive. Head west to the intersection with Diamond Drive at the Los Alamos Medical Center. Continue straight into the Western Area on Trinity.

In about 0.6 miles, the road begins to swing right and becomes 48th Street. Turn left to stay on Trinity Drive and immediately make another left onto a narrow access road between two houses. The trailhead is a few yards ahead on the right. There is parking for about six vehicles.
