Legacy Trails Program Awardee

 

Southfork Trail, White Mountain Wilderness

Southfork trail is still being used by a small population and it has resulted in more user created trails that can result in degradation of the recourses. This project will create one main trail to keep the user impact on one trail. This project takes place on the Southfork trail in Lincoln National Forest – White Mountain Wilderness Area. The 2012 Little Bear Fire that burned 35,300 acres of National Forest System Lands began right above the trail. The area was closed after the fire and the trails were left unmaintained.


Applicant: EcoServants
Project Location: Smokey Bear Ranger District, Lincoln National Forest, New Mexico
Amount Awarded: $10,000.00

EcoServants will begin marking 2 miles of trail and removing trees in March 2023. This would be accomplished with our year-round AmeriCorps crews. Trail restoration will start June 2023 with the EcoServants’ New Mexico Youth Conservation Corps crews from Lincoln and Otero Counties. We will have 8 corps-members and one or two supervisors on a 5 day spike/camp two miles up the trail. Theses crews will restore or reroute 2 miles of Southfork trail over a 3 week period. Crews will use pick-mattocks, Mcleods, rakes and hand saws.
