The Enchanted Circle Trails Association (ECTA) develops, maintains, and promotes trails in the Enchanted Circle region of Northern New Mexico.

We are dedicated to the creation of a regional trail system as envisioned by the community-developed Enchanted Circle Trails Plan to positively affect community health and increase economic development through recreation — all to help improve the quality of life in the region for local residents.

Land Management & Community Partners

ECTA works closely with community groups, municipalities, and land managers to ensure that the needs of all trail users are considered in the growing list of regional trail projects.

Meanwhile, user group organizations, businesses, and area non-profits help maintain and promote our regional trails. From our Adopt-a-Trail program to the development of promotional materials, we are excited to work with passionate groups that share a love of the outdoors.
