Fishers Peak to become public access

Postby Jeremy Hakes » Fri Jan 11, 2019 10:54 am

From the article:
The Trust for Public Land and The Nature Conservancy have signed an agreement to buy the 19,200-acre Crazy French Ranch, which includes Fisher’s Peak. The 9,630-foot-high mountain is clearly visible from downtown Trinidad and figures prominently in many photos of the city.

However, Fisher’s Peak is surrounded by private property. As a result, it is largely off limits to the public. Two nearby state wildlife areas — James M. John and Lake Dorothey — can be reached only by a detour through northern New Mexico.

That will change after the purchase of the ranch is completed and it becomes public land. But that is a few years down the road, according to the city of Trinidad and others involved in the effort.

Let's keep expectations in check. Staunton SP took 27 years to come to fruition, and that land was donated outright.
