Galisteo Basin Preserve Trails Professional Review and Guide

"The master plan for the Galisteo Basin Preserve Stewardship Community includes 50 miles of hiking, biking, and equestrian trails. Currently about 18 miles are open to the public, including this fun little 6.0-mile loop that connects a series of trails through the preserve. According to the official website, “the Galisteo Basin Preserve is the flagship initiative of Commonweal Conservancy, a nonprofit conservation-based community development organization.”

The Commonweal acquired the land that eventually became the Galisteo Basin Preserve in 2003. Since then, the conservation neighborhoods of West Basin, New Moon Overlook, Southern
Crescent, East Preserve, and Conservation Ranches have all developed along with a small network of private and public access trails. The website hails the preserve as a “model for stewardship- based community development in the Southwest.”"
