Pecos NHP to Keep New Trail Open

for Year Round Hiking


Pecos, NM: Pecos National Historical Park is pleased to announce that beginning September 1st, 2019 the 3.8 mile South Pasture Loop trail on the grounds of the historic Forked Lightning Ranch will be open to hikers from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on weekends throughout the year. The process of opening the trail began in earnest during a trial period in 2018 when the South Pasture Loop was accessible on special occasions and staff could easily remedy safety issues and evaluate impacts to the resource. Based on the success of these endeavors, Superintendent Karl Cordova has given approval to open the trail on weekends year round. Supt. Cordova notes, that he and the park staff “have a duty to explore ways to make our park more accessible while meeting the mission of the National Park Service.”

This moderately difficult trail follows old ranch roads through a shady cottonwood grove, along the bluffs of the Pecos River, and through the open pasture lands of the Forked Lightning Ranch. Hikers must first check in at the Visitor Center to receive driving directions to the trailhead and a hiking map.  The trailhead is open from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.; visitors must complete their hike no later than 3:00 p.m.  Dogs are not permitted.  This trail is exposed to the elements; exercise appropriate caution with regard to weather.

Legislation in the 1990s added the Forked Lightning Ranch property to the park, which expanded park lands from 342 acres to more than 6,700 acres.  This vast scenic expanse of land offers visitors a unique opportunity to explore the beauty of the Upper Pecos River watershed.

For more information about the park contact Pecos NHP at (505) 757-7241 or visit our website at www.nps.gov/peco.

Bandelier Artist in Residence, Judy Mosher, to offer “Prose & Poetry in the Park” Writing Workshops 

Bandelier’s third and last artist in residence for 2019, writer and poet Judy K. Mosher PhD., will offer two writing workshops for the public on Saturday, November 16; one from 10am-12noon and another from 1-3pm.  Each session will include writing tips and prompts and a walk around various sites in Frijoles Canyon, weather permitting. Place based writing in Bandelier, whether prose or poetry, is the focus of this generative (non-critique) workshop. Pre-registration not required, simply meet at the Bandelier Visitor Center in Frijoles Canyon. Participants are asked to bring any preferred writing materials, snacks/lunch and water. Bring comfortable walking shoes and dress in layers for any outdoor activity.

Ms. Mosher has made Santa Fe, New Mexico her home for over 30 years. Her poetry chapbook, Shrinking Bones, won First Prize and publication in 2018 by the Poetry Box Press in Oregon.  Judy co-authored the anthology, Bosque Rhythms, from writing in the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge, and has prose and poetry published nationally. Her love of poetry and the natural world led her to seek an Artist Residency at Bandelier National Monument.

Artists living in national parks gather inspiration during their residency to create and compose. Bandelier Superintendent Jason Lott adds, “Regardless of their media, artists are sure to find meaning and be inspired by national parks. The Artist in Residence program allows us to share another interpretation of Bandelier with the public.”  

For details or information, contact the Bandelier National Monument Visitor Center at 505-672-3861 x 517, check the website at www.nps.gov/band, or follow the park Facebook page at BandelierNPS.
