CDT Southern Terminus Project

For years the southern end of the cdt has been a crap shoot. Hikers leaving and arriving have used a shotgun pattern of routes from Silver City to the border and from the border to Silver City. That is all changing. A lot of good trail now exists in the bootheel and beyond. The CDTA is interested in what you would like to see at the CDT Southern Terminus. The PCT has a nice monument. But this is the King of Trails. I think our neighbor Drummond Hadley, heir to Anhesier Busch should build a cantina and stock it with beer. It seems like the neighborly thing to do. Let the CDTA know what you think!

CDT Southern Terminus Project
What would you like to see at the southern end of the CDT?
The Continental Divide Trail Alliance is designing the site for the Southern Terminus for the CDNST at the New Mexico – Mexico border in cooperation with our agency partners (BLM, USFS, NPS). The Northern Terminus for the CDNST, located in Glacier Waterton International Peace Park on the Canada – Montana border is marked with a single concrete pillar. In designing the landmark for the Southern Terminus, we are providing an opportunity for our many important stakeholders who may have thoughts or ideas about this site to be involved in this process.
Provide your input as CDTA and the federal land managers work together to design the Southern Terminus of the Continental Divide Trail. By involving key stakeholders, volunteers and Trail supporters in this effort, we hope to create a fitting symbol for this national treasure and for the epic journey it represents. All work is slated for completion by the end of 2008.
Take the brief Southern Terminus Project survey here.
Please complete this survey by January 21st, 2008 so we can start the design and construction phases of this project. Please forward this survey to others who may be interested.
