Project Description

Moon Mountain Recreation Master Plan

Groundwork Studio is working with the Village of Ruidoso on a recreational master plan for Moon Mountain. The Village has entered into a long term lease with the New Mexico State Land Office in order to develop the 600+ acre property to accommodate several recreational activities. These include multi-use trails (hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding), an 18-hole disc golf course and a community observatory. Located near the geographic center of the Village of Ruidoso, the property represents a valuable wildlife corridor and provides an opportunity to link to the Village’s larger trail system.

Plan recommendations are based on a topographic assessment that has been field verified. These recommendations have been further refined based on the results of multiple public meetings. Implementation of the plan will serve to link the Village’s existing trail system, supplement the existing recreational opportunities of the town and provide positive economic benefit.
