Timber Ridge Trail 2024

About 20 volunteers from NMVFO and Socorro Trails, joined by one USFS staffer, cleared brush and downed trees on Timber Ridge Trail in the Magdalenas. We met at Water Canyon Picnic Area and carpooled up the challenging road towards the observatory, along the way passing a crane that had fallen down a slope after slipping on icy north-facing road.

I had not hiked Timber Ridge before, and it is now my favorite (short) trail in New Mexico, with glorious views on both sides.

We divided into 4 small teams and mostly leap-frogged along the trail, eventually clearing about 3.1 miles.
