Blue Canyon Trail Progress

Work has officially started on the Blue Canyon Trail - connecting the Socorro Rodeo Grounds to the Box Canyon recreation area! We had 30 volunteers last weekend pitch in and build the trail descending from the Black Canyon Trail head into Blue Canyon. We'll have another build day in a month or so to climb out the other side, so stay tuned!

Black Canyon Trail

 A lot is happening on the trail development front lately, and we're happy that the first trail building project of 2021, the Black Canyon Trail, is officially complete!

Thanks to three days of volunteer effort, with 9 to 30+ volunteers each day and a lot of prep-work and planning by the BLM team, we've got a wonderful hiking and biking trail to enjoy. The environmental and archaeological reviews are progressing for the other trails in the Box area, so hopefully we'll be able to improve another trail this summer and connect back to the Rodeo Grounds by fall. 

If you'd like to check out Black Canyon Trail, you can find a map on MTB Project. The Chupadera Crossing loop is a nice way to make a ride out of it.
