Help us establish the new Centennial Loop Trail!

In preparation for the 100th anniversary of the Gila being designated as America’s first Wilderness and the start of the National Wilderness Preservation System, New Mexico Wild is calling on volunteers to help us install new interpretive signage and maps at 5 key trailheads around the Gila Wilderness. These 5 locations are major gateways to the newly defined “Centennial Loop Trail” which will entail a 100-mile loop through the heart of the Gila Wilderness. Come join us in one or more of these projects on this momentous occasion to celebrate the birthplace of Wilderness!
