The high-altitude setting atop Pajarito Plateau, combined with the recreational riches of Los Alamos and White Rock, offer a myriad of sport and leisure opportunities—for all seasons and all ages! More than 150 miles of trails are woven throughout the townsites and the surrounding mountains. With so many sunny days, even in winter, hiking and mountain biking are year-round sports. Come visit some of the best sports and recreation venues in northern New Mexico!

 

Los Alamos is home to Pajarito Ski Mountain, the top-notch Larry Walkup Aquatic Center, a scenic, high altitude golf course, a community skating rink, an urban trail system that connects to adjacent National Forest trails, and is adjacent to Bandelier National Monument, Jemez National Recreation Area, and the Valles Caldera National Preserve. Los Alamos is the eastern terminus of the Jemez Mountains National Scenic Byway. The San Pedro Parks Wilderness (average altitude above 10,000 feet) and the Dome Wilderness are nearby. Los Alamos hosts many outdoor sporting events each year including Tour de Los Alamos (bicycle road race), the Run the Caldera Marathon, the Pajarito Punishment (mountain bike race), the Jemez Mountain Trail Runs, the Los Alamos Triathlon, golf tournaments, and other sporting tournaments.
