San Vicente Creek
Our very first hike as residents was a stroll along San Vicente Creek, a perennial stream that runs through the heart of downtown Silver City.
November 9, 2022
We have returned many times since then, most recently to catch a little Fall color.
Exploring a new trail that runs high along the east bank, we noticed the enormous amount of trash along the opposite shore.
Huge slag heaps, automobile graveyards, old tires and construction debris.
The trail eventually intersects the old Silver City, Deming and Pacific Railroad.
The grade looks perfectly bikeable!
San Vicente Creek has enormous potential as a linear park, but it needs Superfund-level cleanup. Is this my new project?
