I would recommend this trail to anyone who is lookin for a dog friendly trail with plenty of shade. We arrived at 9am and only came across 1 other set of hikers. Some narrow sections where single file is recommended, but most areas allow for side by side walking for you and your pup. Well kept trail with a few muddy spots after heavy rain, and small sections of rocky areas. Benches throughout for rests if needed. Great for an easy-moderate hike due to the incline/decline ratio.

This was a pretty easy trail, although it is long, we just went hiking for a short bit and then went cross country to see a view...

Lots of fun hiking...

Beautiful trail. Lots of forest scenery but be careful looking up because this trail is extremely rocky and you have to watch your step, if you fall you’re going to get hurt.. Don’t hike without the appropriate trail shoe! Id definitely recommend this trail, good exercise and beauty all around. Bring your water and bear spray. We saw mountain lion tracks along the lower part of the trail along with elk, deer and horse.

my recommendation take the trail to the right take the Mexican trestle spur then back to the main trail on down to the bottom once you get to where the trail merges with the switchback trail with a small shelter and maps turn around and go back the way you came unless you like very rocky with very little scenery and very steep uneven walking

I just did section 1 and hiked over to Upper Karr Canyon campground from Karr Canyon Rd which is the end of section 1. Nice hike, mostly through forest. Several rocky areas that were not so great on the ankles. Took a dog and he kept trying to "heel" on this mostly narrow trail which was super annoying. Also the distance marked on the signs on the trail are not accurate which is also frustrating, but if you use this app, you can follow the map. Section 1 is 11.2 miles per The National Park Service.

Not my favorite trail. Close to the highway and a lot of downed trees on the trail.

Pretty tough trail for biking. Some pretty steep inclines. At least for an amateur like myself. Lots of trees blown down on the trail as of 9/2/19 which made it pretty frustrating. But overall it was a nice trail.

fairly flat trail with a quarry on the way . Nothing to write home about, but a nice stroll, Surprisingly little shade for Cloudcroft. Might be fun in winter, but is also used then as a cross country ski trail, so I am not sure if you can even hike it then.
