The Lincoln consists of three ranger districts: Sacramento, Smokey Bear and Guadalupe. There are three major mountain ranges: Sacramento, Guadalupe and Capitan that cover 1,103,441 acres in parts of four counties in southeastern New Mexico. Elevations range from 4,000 to 11,500 feet and pass through five different life zones from Chihuahuan desert to sub-alpine forest. Vegetation types are very diverse across the Forest and range from rare cacti in the lower elevations to Englemann spruce in the higher.

Excellent trail. We got lost coming back from Miners Loop so if you don't like adventure, stay on the main trail.

Fun trail!! Took my 8 year old there today, she absolutely loved it. I'd recommend bringing water shoes of some sort. There's an abandoned building before the falls... Stay out of there, curb your curiosity. I started going in and heard something rustling around in there. Not really sure what it was, but it scared us and we left. Fun trail though!

Great hike partial views of tularosa valley and white sands. Return loop from Cathy overlook is special

Started from 113 willie white more hard then moderate this route had lots of wild life more visitas then expected no other people
