With many thanks to the 13 volunteers who pitched in this Saturday, we now have about 1.7 miles of the new 2.6 miles of single track roughed-in! It's very soft out there still and it needs finish work, but it was good enough for Justin and Luke to go for a spin and try it out. We'll be continuing this project on Saturday May 13th.

We've reached some consensus on names and finalized the Socorro Single Track Trail Network map! Many thanks to Christine at the BLM for helping with the GIS function on this one, and for everyone who submitted feedback on the map and trial names. We'll put one of these up near the East Rd trailhead shortly, and be updating the various user apps (such as mtb project to match).

With many thanks to the City of Socorro, we're developing a single track extension to the City of Socorro 5K Trail at the Rodeo Arena & Sports Complex! This trail will be useful for recreation year round, but it's main aim will be as a race course for the New Mexico Interscholastic Cycling League who'll be hosting a regular race here starting on October 27-29th, 2023. More info on this soon as we'll need a bit of volunteer help on finish work and compacting the tread line.
We're really excited about this trail and even more excited to have youth mountain bike racing here in Socorro. If you're interested in coaching a local middle school or high school team we'd love to hear from you!
We're aiming to standardize on a map and trail names for the Socorro Single Track Network. You can find a draft of it below. Input on names or other missing information is very welcome while we try to reach a consensus amongst the users, land managers, and other stakeholders. We'll make a sign for the trailhead and update the online maps once we have agreement.
