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.

We got a little lost towards the end where the trails converge, but just went back the way we came. Did this trail with a 7-year-old and 14-year-old who really enjoyed it.

Good simple trail with moderate terrain, great for the wife

I really enjoyed this hike. Beautiful scenery and there was some snow on the backside on the mountain when we went last weekend.

We started at T93 and hiked the loop to T92 back to our car. Spectacular views, and signs of wildlife everywhere. Well marked, aside from a few wooden trail signs knocked over, but just follow T92 and you'll stay on track. Time well spent, phenomenal hike.

BE PREPARED. The beginning of this trail (19) is moderate but at the start of the climb to get to the second half (33) is very difficult. The trail is virtually impossible to follow with all of the fallen trees from the fire. We were lucky to have one phone with All Trails to keep us on the approximate path. Views at the top of this trail were amazing but can get steep at times and took a long time to get up. Took a lot more effort to climb than anticipated. This trail is very dangerous for people who are not prepared with multiple days worth of food and water. If you roll your ankle or hurt yourself either in a minor or major way, good luck getting help. There is 10% of the trail a helicopter could get to you. It was beautiful, but be over prepared and ready to spend multiple days due to nasty trail conditions.

Less of a hike, more of a stroll. Should be rated easy. Good forest views

Great views, awesome history with all the remains of the old railroad. The falls are awesome. I would like to go back when more water is flowing.

For a hike with kids, this was awesome. Beautiful views. Trail was easy enough for the kids but not so easy that it was boring.

LOVED this one! The lake was beautiful, and not too crowded when we were there in the summer!

Great time for the whole family!

An amazing trail and the waterfall was worth the trip!

Great trail, took my wife and kids.

I visited this beautiful trail with my granddaughter Natalia at the end of December, some snow but a nice cold weather. We saw more than 20 wild turkeys just near the trailhead where we started our walk, and also we saw them again when we returned to the same point. The trail is not too steep, rocky in some sections but not difficult to walk. We stopped several times to take pictures, to contemplate the beautiful forest and enjoy the nice weather. We definitely recommend this trail.

Nice route, well marked even in light snow the trail contours are easy enough to see. I did accidentally close app map at peak so we used the "green" sierra Blanca ski trail back the base.

great trail for good walk

Made it to 3.5mi marker in about 2.5hrs. Took about 1.75hrs to get back down to the parking lot. Costs $5 per vehicle to park for the day to hike. The views were great and the trail was well marked. Only ran into three other groups of hikers the whole time we were out there (Christmas Eve). There was water available in the creek by the cabin ruins (2.75mi up) if you need a spot to refill. We each brought two liters a piece and it was plenty. Definitely recommend.

I have only been able to hike a section of this trail. Too long and strenuous for me. Very scenic.

Dang. I love this trail. I didn't make it to the end because I knew I'd run out of sunlight but it's now on my bucket list to come back and complete it. The views, the plants and landscape, are incredible. And I love the challenge of it. It's not for the faint of heart but most anyone can do the first mile and see the awesome views!

I walked this trail in December. Didn't see anyone. There's some beautiful views, like far as the eye can see views, and the trail takes to a really lovely field where you can stop and rest or have a bite.

Very nice trail , not too difficult to hike and has some very nice views. The falls are small but very nice. Also enjoyed the railroad remains.
