March 20-22 Mimbres River

This would be a joint project with NM Wild, NM Volunteers for the Outdoors, and HOTG (Heart of the Gila). Horse camp will be 7.8 miles north on Forest Road (FR) 150 (a.k.a North Star Mesa Road, a.k.a. North Star Rd) in a wide spot at the junction of FR 150 and FR 150A. Folks hiking will probably camp near the river. We would be removing large trees from the Mimbres River trail (77) to the river and up the river for about 3 miles. We would also help with packing in small kitchen, food, and tools. Depending on how many people we have, we could also work on clearing the trail up to Signboard Saddle (74).
