CHECK OUT THE ENCHANTED CIRCLE TRAILS PLAN

RMYC is pleased to participate in the local effort in the Taos region to implement the Enchanted Circle Trails Plan. We worked with local partners the Taos Land Trust, Turquoise Tours, the Town of Taos, and the Enchanted Circle Trails Association to promote the benefits of the plan and to encourage the community to rally behind it’s implementation.

Kristina Ortez de Jones, Executive Director of the Taos Land Trust, said it best. “Through this Trails Plan communities in the Enchanted Circle are coming together to loudly and clearly express their desire for better access to trails and safe in-town opportunities for walking and biking.”

We are thrilled to be a part of this effort, and encourage the entire community to get excited and get outside.
