Better Trails in June

It is the start of the riding season. With it comes our first opportunities to help make riding in Taos even better, by exploring and improving our trails:

 

June 2 Saturday, 9am TMBA hosts a Group Ride on Horse Thief Trail.

Meet at the Taos County Transfer Station at 9am on Saturday morning.

 

June 8 & 9 Saturday and Sunday, 9am  the Carson National Forest hosts Trail Master Training Workshop at the Taos Ski Valley.

This FREE two day event hosted by the Carson National Forest will train our local riders on trail maintenance techniques so that we can improve our trails properly. The event will meet at the Taos Ski Valley’s Tent on Thunderbird Road. Class discussions will be held to review proper techniques, then everyone will head to the trail to put that new information to good use by working on actual trails. Certification as a trail master will be a possibility after completing the two day training. This Workshop is open to any trail user. For more updated details, visit the Enchanted Circle Trail Website at enchantedcircletrails.org. 

 

June 15 Saturday  – Trail Stewardship Day & South Boundary Logout

Enchanted Circle Trails Association, Taos Mountain Bike Association, Mareno Valley Trekkers will host a Trail Stewardship Day. This event, in conjunction with National Trail Days gives all of us the opportunity to give back to our local trails. We’ll be working at two of Taos’ favorite trails: Rift Valley Overlook trails and South Boundary Trail. Last year we cleared the entire SBT trail in one epic push.

  • South Boundary: Mountain bikers meet at 8am at the Taos Youth and Family Center to catch bike shuttles to Garcia Park, or meet at Garcia Park at 9am to work on foot. Hand saws provided.
  • Taos Valley Overlook (Rift Valley): Meet at 9am at the County Road 110 trailhead.

Bring a lunch, gloves, water & sun protection.
