Galesteo Basin Preserve
Over the past 15 years, Galesteo Basin Preserve Commonweal Conservancy has constructed the largest publicly-accessible, privately-owned trail network in the American Southwest. The GBP trails gracefully traverse the savannah grasslands, sandstone ridge lines and arroyos of an iconic landscape in northern New Mexico. With support from donors to the $1.4M Stewardship. Campaign, an additional 22 miles of hiking, biking, and equestrian trails are planned for development during the next four years.
The trails of the Galesteo Basin Preserve are celebrated by residents and visitors as a place of refuge and inspiration. The broad extent and diversity of the GBP trails invite day-long excursions and short-form wandering. It’s a place for people and wildlife. A place for well-behaved dogs and respectful equestrians and cyclists.
