This short and easy ride celebrates a leader in modern- day wildlife conservation. Aldo Leopold was a conservationist, forester, writer, and outdoor enthusiast. He may be best known for his collection of essays, first published in 1949, titled A Sand County Almanac: And Sketches Here and There, in which he discusses many of his ideas on conservation, including the “land ethic.” The access to the Aldo Leopold Trail begins on the northwest side of the Rio Grande State Park Nature Center. Follow the gravel trail south, back out of the parking area. Parking lot gates are locked at 5 p.m., and vehicles still in the lot will be locked in overnight. If you plan on being on the trail after 5 p.m., park outside the gates.
