“One of the more scenic interior trails in the Cloudcroft area with aspens to open meadows.”

For a run this trail can be linked to FR 568 which will return you back to the area of the TH. FR 568 is about 3 miles.
Continuing into the meadow at the top of the trail may or may not be prohibited. Possibly private land
This trail ascends through pine and aspen forest before opening up into a series of clearings or meadows. Because this trail is common for horseback riding, the trail is narrow and scooped for a large portion, especially entering the meadows.
The trail terminates at FR 568 near a much larger clearing. This is a favorite of hikers, bikers, runners, and horseback riders as well in the busier seasons (usually May-Sept). Yield appropriately.
Flora & Fauna
Mule deer, elk, coyote, and black bear.
