The El Nogal Area hosts several popular multiuse trails where you can see an array of wildflowers and incredible views of Taos, the Rio Grande, San Antonio Mountain, and Wheeler Peak. We will be working on Devisadero Trail, South Boundary Trail, Ojitos Canyon Trail, and Mondragon Trail, doing trail maintenance including removal of deadfall, brushing back encroaching vegetation, step construction, tread restoration, and signage installation.
Camping will be available Friday, June 17th through noon Sunday, June 18th. Potable water and portable bathrooms are located nearby. The campsite is on the eastern edge of Taos, so all town amenities will be available. NMVFO will provide breakfast Saturday and Sunday, dinner Saturday night. Carpooling is encouraged. Registration for this project is required for planning purposes; please sign up for this project no later than 12:00 PM on Tuesday, June 13th so that we can match provisions to participants. Unfortunately, we will not be able to support restricted diets.
El Nogal Campground is located approximately 3 miles east of Taos and can be reached via U.S. Highway 64.
From Taos Plaza, take Kit Carson Road (U.S. 64) east 2.8 miles into Taos Canyon to the trailhead parking lot at El Nogal camping area.
