An amazing volunteer group that does wonderful things. Several sections of trails are open to the public across the US, and the hike at High Rolls is no exception. Keep up the good work.

Not hard to find please ask around not hard to find from town. Lot of information signs and good exercise. The Tressel Trail was a lot of fun

The walk from the Cloudcroft entry to the trails toward the rim and toward the trestle are easy access and not to steep for my aged condition. The view is simply awesome and inspiring.

We loved this FREE park, which was conveniently located just off of the main road in Cloudcroft. It was perfect for my kids (age 4+). There is a large, paved, looped parking lot with lots of shaded picnic areas scattered about. The hiking path was well-cleared with moderate hills. There was a very short looped hike from the parking lot, out to a look out point, and along a very scenic trail back to the parking lot. Also, a little longer hike to the old train trestle. Clean restrooms on-site. Spoke to the on-site caretaker - he was very friendly and helpful. With so many families and tourists on the trail, I felt safe being alone with my two kids.

The kids were esp. interested in learning about the "haunted train" that can be "heard" twice a day. Fun!

Wow! This is a great trail. They are clearly marked, and have several lookouts. The views are just beautiful. You get to have a fun hike while learning about history. It was rainy and a storm was coming in, but we had an enjoyable time. If you don't want to walk all the way to the outlook to check out the amazing Mexican Canyon Trestle, be sure you drive to it when you get back to your car. It's awesome!
