Hop Canyon trails 25 & 25A are clear!

With thanks to our friends at the New Mexico Volunteers for the Outdoors, we held a joint trail maintenance day on Trails 25 and 25A heading out of Hop Canyon south of Magdalena, NM. 

One crew worked on clearing the deadfall on Trail 25, while the second crew worked on the overgrowth and a bit of deadfall on Trail 25A. I think in total we cleared 24 trees and brushed 5 miles of trail!

There are a few photos from the crew on TR25 at the NMVFO Flickr page if you're interested. And if you'd like to know if a trail has been worked on before your next hike or bike trip, check out our trail status map - any trails in green are good to go!

Magdalena Mountains Trail Conditions

We're working with the Magdalena Ranger District, Cibola National Forest trail folks, and our friends at NMVFO to improve the condition of the trails in the Magdalena Mountains. You can see the trails that have been recently scouted and/or cleared on our Trail Status Map. 

Bookmark it and check it before you go out for a hike or bike ride. As of early July, Mesa Trail 13, South Baldy Trail 11 and Copper Canyon Trail 10 are all in pretty good shape. Anything green on the map is resolved, yellow items are partially resolved, and black represents our "to do" list. 

We welcome trail reports too if you record a track and GPS coordinates for problem spots!
