  • Hidden in plain sight. I know folks who've been going to Cloudcroft for years and never knew about this amazing plave!
  • Great hiking trail! Beautiful scenery!
  • It is really beautiful, and the facilities are very nice.
  • Maps are a bit odd and annoying.... A bit of a warning, you start at the top and walk down quite a bit in elevation, so just be prepared for a strenuous walk back up.
  • Awesome views
