Grand View Trail Description

The Grand View Trail is an easy trail constructed along portions of the abandoned Alamogordo and Sacramento Mountain Railroad grade. It winds through pinon and juniper and offers a breathtaking vista of desert, mountains and sky. Trail markers and interpretive signs identify plants, animals and geographical features along the way.
There is also a short spur trail across from the main trail that passes one collapsed trestle and ends at a second collapsed trestle by a small stream.

Hiking or Mountain Bike

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

A gem in our back yard!

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.

Grand View Curve

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