Cavern City Trail Keepers strives to create, maintain, and preserve a diversity of trail experiences for mountain bikers and other outdoor enthusiasts in the Carlsbad, NM area. We were established in late 2022 by a group of local mountain bikers. Our members work regularly to maintain and improve the mountain bike and multi use trails in the Carlsbad area. We are 3/4 of the way through building and installing new trail signs at the intersections along the La Cueva Trails. We often conduct erosion control, bush trimming, feature building, and other necessary trail maintenance. Besides our work on the trails, we organize group rides and participate in community improvement and involvement activities. See our 2023 brochure in the attachments. We offer membership to the public for participation in our events. Our board consists of 3 members who choose to take on leadership roles. Our Secretary/Treasurer is a non-voting member. We are currently an all volunteer organization. We are young and have spent the past year and a few months building our organization. We feel that we are set up now to build our membership and to take on some larger projects. Also, over the past couple of years, we have worked to build a strong relationship with the BLM, who manages most of the lands that local trails are on. Several of our members have history working with the BLM on the OHV trails east of our town for many years. Although young, (our organization) we have board members with strong backgrounds in important aspects of running our organization. Among us, we have experience in construction, electrical contracting, business management, education, artistry, and information technology. We all share a passion for the outdoors and access to public lands for outdoor recreation. We are all also native to Carlsbad. We care deeply for our community and our lands and are trying to play a role in the new economic developments that are occurring in our neck of the desert (not woods down here).
