South Baldy Trail 2019

The New Mexico Volunteers for the Outdoors (NMVFO) camped out at Water Canyon Campground group site on the weekend of September 21, to work on South Baldy Trail #11 in the Cibola National Forest, near Magdalena, NM.

The campsite featured a huge wooden shelter with graceful laminated arches.

As we are getting later in the year, breakfast prep needed to start in the dark.

Trail work involved corridor clearing of oak and mountain mahogany, and tread work, mostly fixing ditching and removing berms, and a bit of chainsaw work.

Local Magdalena people Jim N, Brian, Matt, and Josh were joined by project leader Nick, Jenny, Jim M, Don, Julie, Ana, and Carlos, and cook Christina.
