The Gallup City Council and New Mexico State Land Commissioner Ray Powell have approved an agreement to create recreational trails on State Trust Land in Red Rock Park near Church Rock.
The three-mile Church Rock Trail and Pyramid Trail will cross six acres of State Trust Land and will stretch about 2.5 miles. The City of Gallup will pay the State Land Office almost $8,000 for the right of way access, which will last for 35 years.
Gallup Mayor Jackie McKinney says the agreement puts in place the last piece of the Red Rock Park Trails System.
