    Idea! Collectively Using Trailforks in New Mexico

    Howdy folks. It's been pretty quiet in this forum with the exception of a few trail report updates so I wanted to throw out an idea: can we all try to unify on one platform?

    Currently Northern NM still has got a good deal of snow, which is fantastic considering last year, but also means there's a lot of confusion about which trails are clear, muddy, etc. Given the amount of snow, this will likely be a big year for clearing trees as well. Today is supposed to be 52* and I don't know about you, but that means my legs are getting the itch to go ride.

    The Santa Fe Fat Tire Society is moving all our reporting onto Trailforks in hopes we have clear statuses and updates from both riders on the ground, but also the sawyers working out in the field. Trailforks is also an incredibly useful tool to have on your phone, regardless.

    Statuses have been updated on Trailforks for the Santa Fe Region. To give a current status update in and around Santa Fe as of February 27:

    All trails Sidewinder/Chamisa and above are snow covered. The lower mountain trails have some ice and mud in sunnier spots.

    All Dale Ball trails (including Atalaya) are a mix of packed snow, mud, and variable conditions. We'll be watching these more closely as it warms up.

    La Tierra trails are in similar shape, but quite muddy with some snow in shadows.

    Glorieta Camps is completely snowed in. It's going to be a while before we start seeing much dirt.

    We also are posting recent updates and have a submission field built into the site:

    Hopefully we can start to thaw and have a great year without forest closures.

    They both have their upsides and challenges, but from our perspective, being able to integrate things like unsactioned trails, land managers, detailed elevation shadings, and the other abilties for other website widgets really makes it a great platform.

    Locally controlled trail management is paramount and Trailforks is providing awesome tools for advocacy groups to do just that. It just keeps getting getting better. Smart move getting everybody on board.
