In keeping with the governor’s guidelines and the Public Health Order, New Mexico Rails to Trails has postponed our upcoming work days pending the rescinding of the Public Health Order. Once work days resume our first project will be replacing deck boards and rail supports on the Salado Canyon Bridge.
While most day-use areas and campgrounds in the Lincoln National Forest have been closed, trails are still open and dispersed camping is still permitted. See this Forest Service article on their website for more information.
Stay healthy and safe and we look forward to seeing you once the current situation improves!
We are limiting numbers at this work day to comply with state guidance and help keep our members healthy. If you did not already RSVP for the workday, please do not attend. Our next workday is planned for April 18, barring an extension of the Health Department Order.
Our March Work Day is Saturday, March 21, from 9AM to Noon on the Salado Trestle.
