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 cool off a bit.

    Steve, should I leave Andy at home? Will this be too much for the little fellow?

    Would this hike work for someone with a fear of heights?

    Or there's this website that describes an 8mi hike, which might be tough for those scared of heights. http://www.traillink.com/trail/cloud-climbing-trestle-trail.aspx
