The Rancho Santa Fe Association celebrated a trail dedication on Tuesday, Sept. 29, with the new segment christened by honorary horse Wrigley before the ribbon was snipped from the fence posts.

The new 800 feet of trail along Las Colinas near the Rancho Santa Fe Village Church eliminates the need for pedestrians and equestrians to cross Las Colinas. Arnold Keene, RSF Association field operations manager, and Suzy Halleland, executive administrator of the Village Church, worked together for a year to get the trail in place — it took about three months to construct. Trails committee members said they were happy that the new trail segment would provide for a safer passage to link to the Association’s network of trails.
