I just have to come back and do this trail at least once a year. I recommend you do not take the elevator get your money's worth. I recommend you arrange your hiking time to come up right before they close the cave so you can wait and see the bats come out. It's amazing.

I'm a low-lander, so I would call this moderate, rather than easy based on the altitude. The trail is beautiful and has a few different distinct landscapes. I took my time and enjoyed the views and the wildlife, and finished in about 4.5 hours.

State park service rates this as difficult due to the 1000 ft vertical climb in first mile. Be prepared for challenging hike with beautiful views as your reward. Actual mileage is 3 miles.

Beautiful trail. The meadow and small pond (serpent lake) are well worth the hike which is actually around 8 miles round trip.

Osha Trail is really meant to be a place for the whole family. It is easy and beautiful. It is very simple to reach. On US 82 highway, just before you arrive to the town of Cloudcroft NM, you will see the parking lot sign. The trail is marked as 2.1 miles long and the altitude gain is around 300 ft. You start climbing at the entrance of the trail until you reach an intersection. Not matter if you go right or left, just follow the signs and you will return to the same place later. Just be aware that part of the trail is share with the one that goes to the Pines Campground. The reward is the lush forest of fir, aspen, pine and maple that you will encounter. The trail was named after the osha plant, an ancient medicinal herb (Chuchupaztle in Spanish). Being so close to town makes this trail very crowded. Some rain and a light thunder storm was part of the adventure at the end of the walk.

We decided to try a walk suggested in the AllTrails site named Bluff Springs Trail inside Lincoln National Forest.. At the beginnig, we thought that this trail at least will take us by the actual Bluff Springs place. That was not the case. We were not even close to the spring. You forget about that event when you appreciate the beauty of the surroundings. All kind of vegetation was on sight. Tall trees, grass and flowers were everywhere. The trail is a loop that starts in a busy campground. It follows an old road that is closed to the transit of motorized vehicles. The trail is easy to follow. One highlight was that we encountered a heard of elk that disappeared in a flash. By visiting the Lincoln National Forest we can see the endless possibility to practice our beloved entertainment.
