Landavaso Trail 2023

About 28 volunteers celebrated National Public Lands Day by building 1.0 miles of the 3.5 mile Landavaso Trail just west of Magdalena. Socorro Trails partnered with BLM Socorro and several Magdalena volunteers, with donations from Socorro Walmart and Tumbleweeds Cafe/SCOPE.

Mike and Marty from BLM had already roughed out the trail with a custom-built drag-plow, so volunteers used McLeods and pick-mattocks to remove grass and rock and smooth out trail, in rolling grassland among scattered juniper and piƱon.

Rocky Mountain Youth Corps is expected to finish the trail next month. We look forward to hiking this trail… often!
