Nice way to spend a couple hours

Nice trail. Go left first for views back of the town and the dunes. Otherwise, a pleasant hike through the trees.

Good distance and beautiful sights. Make sure you pack water and a snack for this trail. The weather can change quickly and it is good to be prepared even for a medium hike.

This is a good trail if you are looking for something short and easy or if you wanted a nice hike, but we're strapped for time.

Osha gives you a taste for what the area has to offer. The trail is easy to follow. There are some areas that require hiking uphill and steady footing. The views of the valley are beautiful anytime of year, even winter. This trail goes through forest and opens up to a small meadow about half way through (my favorite part)... More

Anyone who has traveled in the Mountain West knows that altitude sickness can totally ruin a trip that is supposed to be relaxing. If you visit Cloudcroft, walking the OSHA trail is a good way to help you get acclimated to Cloudcroft's 8600+ feet of elevation. My wife and I walked the OSHA trail one morning early in our three...

We hiked a 2.5 mile loop on the Osha trail starting from the trail head right outside Cloudcroft. We also hiked the Trestle Trail the previous day, and I think I liked this one better. They're both great trails for a short hike, though.

We hiked a portion of the Osha Trail early one morning, and were treated to a lovely early morning rainbow. The trail is rocky which can make hiking slippery after recent rains. The views are wonderful. We had hoped to see deer and elk on this trail - we had been told that they were visible in the early morning... More

This was a really great trail with awesome views. Beautiful meadow at about midway through the hike. Kids had a lot of fun. Our kids range in age from 9-16.

The Chamber of Commerce turned us on to this trail and it was all that it was said to be. Has enough hills to keep it a little but of a challenge but most of the path is easy. The highlight is a very pretty meadow about mid-way through the hike. This is a fun little excursion to see the... More
