In 2019, the BLM contracted the Enchanted Circle Trails Association to develop a Conceptual Trails Plan for the Horsethief Mesa area to help meet the growing demand for a comprehensive multi-user trail network in Northern New Mexico. TMBA and other community volunteers spent hundreds of hours helping ECTA plan and ground-truth what has the potential to be a first-class recreational trail network.

The original Conceptual Trails Plan adds 24.5 miles of new multi-use trail to the Horesthief area, providing a variety of skill level and technical challenges, including flow style trails, technical rock sections and a 1-mile beginner loop suitable for Striders and those just getting into the sport of mountain biking.

You can find a presentation of the the Conceptual Trail Plan that TMBA helped ECTA develop here:
