The Cibola Trail Alliance

Trails for All

The Cibola Trail Alliance is a group of people in Mt. Taylor Ranger District, in Cibola County, New Mexico, who truly enjoy trails. Our organization was founded to bring people together to develop and maintain a network of multi-use trails throughout our community.

The CTA is open to anyone who has a love of the outdoors as much as we do. Cyclists, runners, hikers, ATV users and horseback riders are all welcome, as is anyone else who uses trails for outdoor recreation.

Outdoor recreation - whether it’s enjoying the trails, camping, birding or fishing, or whatever gets you outside - is a shared joy for more than 239.2 million Americans. That’s a lot of people supporting the outdoors, including 148.3 million who enjoy trails through hiking, mountain biking and trail running.

Support comes in many forms, mostly through “sweat equity,” swinging a tool while building and maintaining trails. Although trail work continues to be an important component to successful outdoor recreation destinations, so does advocacy.

CTA supports advocacy that promotes responsible use of public lands and encourages partnerships and coalitions as a means to achieve desired outcomes for all parties. We also go on group adventures to enjoy the trails we love and work hard to maintain.
