Cloud-Climbing Trestle Trail

Great hiking trail

February, 2015 by carlynnricks

Beautiful scenery, well-marked trail, great for hiking with few, if any, bikes. The trestle is historical and interesting.

Cloud-Climbing Trestle Trail

Wishful thinking

February, 2015 by r2sharpe

Spent a day checking out the four trails listed near Cloudcroft, NM. Couldn't get onto much of a trail when we went to Cloudcroft. Even the ranger station in Cloudcroft didn't know much about the trails. Did walk on a pathway for a little ways after parking on the side of the highway that goes through town, but to think about riding a bike, forget it. We did enjoy the fudge we bought at the Apple Barn though.

Cloud-Climbing Trestle Trail

Best as a hike; Trail surface was loose golf ball size rocks and rugged for bikes

May, 2013 by jbwla

April 2013 we rode (mostly walked) our mountain bikes in the Trestle trail section by the Depot Replica just southwest of Cloudcroft NM. This trail has wonderful access to the Mexican canyon and "s" trestles. Having ridden close to 30 rail trails in the USA I was not expecting the trail bed to be primarily loose golf ball size rock. Far more conducive to hiking than biking for the average family. Perhaps in the past the surface was less loose rocks but there is a drought in the area and it likely may have taken its toll on the trail bed.

Trestle Recreation Area

May, 2009 by noeljkelller

Nice area with Replica Railroad Depot, Water Fountain, Picnic & Port-A-Potties.
( N32.95742 W105.74996 ). An excellent, short asphalt loop trail, 0.25 mile, that leads to the “Devil’s Elbow Overlook” and view of “White Sands Missile Range”. Access to Trestle Trail is to steep and rough for Tri-Cruiser. Noel Keller 19 May 09

Grand View Trail

Hiking or Mountain Bike

May, 2009 by noeljkelller

Drove out to the Trailheads on Fresnal Canyon Rd. Upper Trailhead is an obscure winding path to the RR Grade. Lower Trailhead ( N32.95819 W105.85229 ) has parking but stile over fence. No Access for Tri-Cruiser. See photo. Noel Keller 19 May 09

"As a member of the El Paso Ridgewalkers, I have hiked this trail many times. There are many photos of this trail, both summer and autumn. I have photos of the Mexican Canyon Trestle, and the collasped S-Trestle. The web address is http://www.elpasoridgewalkers.com"

Grand View Trail

A gem in our back yard!

January, 2004 by

The Grandview Trail is an easy walk and has outstanding views of pinon covered mountains and canyons. There is a covered resting area and only light traffic along the trail. What a find only minutes from the High Rolls General Store on the old Fresnal Canyon Road.

"Easy hike, spectacular view of the Tularosa Basin on the old Alamogordo/Sacramento Mountain Railway roadbed, steepest standard gauge railroad in the world, visit

Cloud Climbing Trail

July, 2001 by mitchell

We have just returned from the Cloud-Climbing Trail in Cloud Croft. I was so pleased with our trip and the trail. It is one of the best trails that I have been on. The sights were just simply awesome. I was so pleased to be on a Rails to Trails. I hope to go on more trails such as this one.
