[Cdt-l] Reminder to New Mexico CDT users

Please do not approach ranch homes for any reason. Frequent trespass by both hikers and illegal aliens have local ranchers and landowners in an aggravated state, and our BLM contacts advise us that further complaints from local landowners could lead to trail closures south of Lordsburg. Please use the information provided on the new BLM website below to avoid trespassing on private property. The BLM is placing water cache boxes every 10-12 miles along the official route from the Southern Terminus to Lordsburg and plans to have these in place later this summer. While water cache boxes and other solutions are being put in place, caching water is the only way to safely make this hike. Contact the local BLM office at 575-525-4300 for recommended locations. The BLM and CDTA are working to establish the groundwork for a CDNST-friendly trail community in Southern New Mexico and local landowners are key to these efforts. Please respect the rights of private property owners along the Trail.
