Mario M. on Cloud Climbing Rail Trail
Hike was great. Plainly, I would recommend it to anyone
Awesome overlook of a tree-filled valley, nice shade for more than half of the trail, really enjoyed it overall. Plan on going back soon with a proper carrying solution for our 3yr old as carrying him on my hip most of the way was definitely strenuous and kind of took away from the experience.
This hike is great. You start at the top and hike all the way down. And of course you have to go up all over again. The terrain is not that rough, what gets rough is the climb back up. Make sure you bring water, more than likely you will need it if you do the loop. You will hear lots of birds. They are hard to spot we carries photo gear and dos the hike with out any problems. I am no means in great shape and was able to do it. The last 0.2 miles were a bit tough but doable. Good luck and enjoy it.
We hiked this trail just as a reminder of days gone by. We grew up in the area and we always hiked and played and went inner tubing in these beautiful mountains. The trail was great. Super easy! Don't forget the Bridal Veil Falls Trail. It has some elevation change but nothing to worry about. It has some history to investigate.
This trail was really difficult for us to navigate. It was me my hubby and our five kids. We couldn't understand all the different trails and which way we were supposed to go and ended up hiking 6 miles that day and just had to track back because it looked like there was no stopping point. Trails were nice just confusing. We plan on trying it again once we go back. Pls msg me if anyone has any advice on making this a shorter trail for our kiddos. We loved the OSHA trail though!
Overcast day, trail was a little wet, but very easy trail that one could do well in tennis shoes or light boots. Trail is clearly marked and well travelled. Beautiful walk thru the woods and wonderful vista's of the Mexican Canyon Trestle Bridge and the surround area.
