Mexican Canyon Trestle Trail

The Mexican Canyon Trestle is a relatively easy loop that follows an old railroad bed just outside of Cloudcroft. This is actually a combination of three trails; the Switchback, the Old Cloudcroft Highway and the trestle recreation trails. Together total about 8 miles of realitive easy trails. It's about an 90 minute drive but that'll give it a chance to warm up a bit.

    Great high-altitude hike. The alpine/wooded forests were a welcome change to hiking in the desert. Trails were spectacularly maintained and marked, and having the group as company made it that much better.
