Greenways & Big Ditch Master Plan

The Silver City Greenways corridor is approximately 10 miles of planned pathways along the riparian corridors within the Town of Silver City. The corridor includes segments of the Silva Creek, Pinos Altos Creek, San Vicente Creek, and the section known as "The Big Ditch" through downtown Silver City.

Approximately half of the planned corridor has been incised into steep channels that have been re-naturalized over the decades with native and non‐native plant species. Other portions are still relatively natural such as the north extent of the Pinos Altos Creek and the south extent of the San Vicente Creek. Most of the planned corridor is within an urban or urbanizing setting.
