This is a wonderful hike, but be aware it goes down, down, down and comes up, up, back, so be prepared with lots of water and be prepared for the hike back up to the car.

Small off the road town with beautiful scenery. Nice trails and great BBQ at Mad Jacks. Had a great visit stopped at the local candy shop to grab some homemade fudge, salted caramels, and peanut brittle.

Easy to moderate hiking close to town; enjoyed seeing a bit of the old railroad. Lots of parking at the railhead and easy to follow maps for those less experienced trail walkers.

This is a beautiful area along a historic highway and situated just outside of Cloudcroft. The scenery is stunning, the air is clear and the temperatures are very inviting in the summer. Definitely worth stopping if you are in the area.

This was a great hike for our family of four, including our two sons (9 and 12). It was a good length, and the trestle was very cool. We went in the late afternoon, and it was nice and cool as well.

The wooden structure is a marvel of oily darkened beams. It really takes you back in time. You can see the structure from the main highway from a lookout, but if you have a couple of hours I really recommend the hike into the woods that ends at the Rail bridge. It is so green and beautiful and then it... More

Friends told me about the Rails-to-Trails restored railroad trestle just outside of Cloudcroft. As the railroad developers added a great railroad resort to their logging venture, including the world's highest golf course (at that time) during the turn of the century, it is great that there is still the opportunity to see how the rails looked to those who originally...
