NMVFO: Trail Work in the Magdalena Mountains



  • Instructor NMVFO

Join NM Volunteers for the Outdoors for a 1.5 day project in the Magdalenas of the Cibola National Forest. Volunteers will be rerouting, improving drainage, repairing/redefining tread, clearing brush and removing deadfall on South Baldy Trail #11. Camping will be available beginning Friday evening 9/20 at the Water Canyon Group Site, which has a large gazebo & fire pit. Volunteers can tent camp at the group site. Camp cook will provide breakfast & dinner 9/21, and breakfast 9/22. Volunteers are asked to supply their own drinking water, lunches, plus dinnerware (cup, plate, utensils, etc). Vegetarian options will be available for all meals. Note that the farthest end of the trail is 2.5 miles with over 2,500 ft elevation gain, but don't worry if that seems too much, as you can also stay on the lower section. Required: Day pack, water, sturdy boots, long pants, work gloves, eye protection (sunglasses). Sorry, no pets. Due to cooking logistics, sign-ups close Tuesday evening 9/17. For more information or to sign up, please contact Nick Tenorio, nick@zder.net, 575-418-9339. Hope to see you there!
