I took this trail from the USFS Pines campgrounds straight into town. It's only about a mile as the crow flies that way. The Lincoln forest is beautiful in this part of New Mexico. The section I walked didn't change elevation which suited this old...More

Beautiful gently climbing trail with a number of scenic overlooks. Did the trail with my small dog and she had no problems navigating it.

We ignored the weather forecast and hiked anyway. We got rained on, hailed on and the lightening was unnerving. Nonetheless, we had a great time and it is a beautiful trail. Highly recommend for anyone. Not a difficult trail at all.

Great trail, not very difficult as far as inclines, declines - just a very rocky trail - take care when walking. Not great in my opinion for kids, dogs, or people with balance issues. Great views!

If you are standing in front of the new Electric Coop Building, there is a road to your right. This is the Mexican Ave. You follow that until you see the road off to the right, this is Osha Trail Road. Hope this helps.
