Enjoy the Rio Grande by visiting one of our riverine parks or hiking the Socorro Valley Bosque Trail.
Select a park on the map to learn more about it and get directions. Visit our Central Socorro Bosque Severance Project page to learn about the work we recently completed with our partners to clear invasive trees from around the riverine parks and Bosque Trail!
Location of the ~4 mile long Bosque Trail (in yellow). The SOBTF and volunteers are working to improve the condition of the trail between Confluence Park and Otero Park by putting down gravel and installing trail markers and signs. This work will take place in the spring/summer of 2019, so please use the Contact Us page if you are interested in volunteering!
The trail south of Otero Park is our newest section of trail (work began in summer of 2018), and we have plans to extend it further south in the future.
Please visit our Socorro Valley Rio Grande Trail page to learn about our efforts to create a multi-use trail going north to south across Socorro County!
The Save Our Bosque Task Force continues to work on:
Developing recreation access points and facilities in designated areas (riverine and riverside parks, fuel breaks, trails)
Developing designated areas for motor vehicle access and restricting unauthorized access (signs, gates, fences)
Coordinating maintenance and management of existing facilities (replacement of table, grills, fences, signs)
Facilitating waste removal (adopt-a-park program, scheduling of appropriate crews and equipment, coordinating disposal of materials, advocating for extended operating hours and decreased fees at landfills)
Developing educational outreach programs
