located high in the Lincoln National Forest. It is located in the Otero county of southeast New Mexico. The haven offers fantastic opportunities for hiking, camping, motorcycling, horseback riding, and fishing. It is famous for the renowned Cloudcroft Lodge. The community attracts Texans seeking milder climates due to its pleasant summers at an elevation of 9,000 feet, and Cloudcroft is renowned as the country’s southernmost ski resort. A high-tech employer, Cloudcroft is home to two sizable ground terminals for the tracking and data relay satellite system.
The El Paso and Northeastern Railroad was established by the Eddy brothers a century ago, and by 1898 it had built a line from Alamogordo to Toboggan Canyon. As “a meadow for the clouds,” the train workers proposed the name Cloudcroft. The following summer, John A. Eddy opened the Pavilion at the peak with 40 tents placed on wooden platforms, a kitchen, dining area, living room, and entertainment area—early glamping as we now know it.
After the resort garnered a lot of attention in El Paso, locals and tourists started to flock there. Once the railroad had reached Toboggan Canyon, a stagecoach would take passengers to Cloudcroft, New Mexico. Meeting the train at the depot became a daily event in Cloudcroft once the railroad arrived there in early 1900. The railroad stopped operating for people in 1938 and for freight in 1947 as vehicles and trucks took the place of the trains.
As you enter Cloudcroft on Highway 82 from Alamogordo, you’ll pass the Mexican Canyon Trestle, a historic wooden trestle bridge with a sign explaining “The Cloud Climbing Railroad,” which was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.
Things To Do In Cloudcroft, New Mexico
1. Cloudcroft Area Hiking
Trestle Recreation Area
The Trestle Recreation Area has a lovely overlook and is only open for daytime picnics. Restrooms, water, interpretative materials, and easy access to hiking routes are all present.
New Mexico Rails-To-Trails Association
To transform abandoned railroad lines into multi-access, multi-use recreational trails, the New Mexico Rails-to-Trails Association built and maintained nearly 90 miles of linked trails. 113 hikes are available on the All-Trails App.
Rim Trail, a network of old Native American roads, railroad grades, homestead trails, and logging routes, winds through fir and pine woods, aspen, and verdant meadows for 30.5 miles. Various locations offer breathtaking views over the Tularosa Basin, which is more than 4,000 feet below.
Bluff Springs Waterfall
Dispersed camping is available adjacent to the waterfalls at Bluff Springs Waterfall, a partially built picnic park 8 miles south of Cloudcroft off the Sunspot Highway.
2. Ski Cloudcroft
The best snow in the world falls at Ski Cloudcroft, the southernmost ski resort in the United States. 25 fantastic trails, including eight for beginners, seven for intermediates, eight for experienced users, and two for experts, make up this long-time favourite. With the double chair lift, rope tow lift, and hand tow lift, you can ascend the hill swiftly and with almost as much enjoyment as going down the slopes. Come ski, snowboard, and tube on the 700-foot vertical drop and 9,100-foot summit peak.
Enjoy the Cloud Nine Ski School’s expert, reasonably priced private and group lessons for snowboarding or skiing. There is a big selection of expertly maintained equipment available for rental.
The cost of the lift ticket and tube rental is included in the price of two-hour blocks of snow tubing, which is a tonne of fun. Three lanes, each 700 feet long, with a 70-foot vertical drop, are available for tubing. It’s a fantastic ride!
Pro Tip: Try Crescent Moon’s Foam Snowshoes for snowshoeing among the aspen and Ponderosa pine. They are made of military-grade Velcro material with hook and loop bindings, sturdy rubber lugs, and ice spikes that are so light you’ll think you’re walking on clouds and are completely silent. Like a favourite pair of athletic shoes, the flexible rocker platform bends and rolls with your foot.
3. Ice Rink at Cloudcroft James Sewell
The James Sewell Ice-Skating Rink, the only outdoor natural ice skating rink in the Southwest, is located in the old town of Cloudcroft. In a cosy space with a fireplace, put on your skates. There is terrific music, high-quality skates, and hot cocoa provided.
4. The Lodge Resort’s Golf Course
Play twice at the Lodge 9-Hole Golf Course, which is available from April 1 to October 31 and follows the Scottish custom of using different tees and flags for each shot. The over 122-year-old historic course, which is currently ranked seventh globally, was created in 1899. The good thing about the altitude is that your drives last longer than they ever have.
5. The Lodge Resort And Spa
The Lodge Resort & Spa at Cloudcroft is a wonderful historic hotel that has intriguing eerie stories from the past and where some people claim to sense a haunting presence. It is perched high above the 9,000-foot mountain. There are 59 suites and guestrooms in the Victorian style, and no two are the same. Keep in mind that the motel, which has three stories, lacks an elevator. There are still some renovations going on.

6. Outdoor Recreation And Mountain Biking

It is customary to document your experience on the geocaching website or app and to note your find in the logbook located inside the cache.
Pro tip: Prevent “muggles” or non-geocachers from finding the caches.
8. Pioneer Village & Museum in the Sacramento Mountains
Visit the museum to learn about the village’s history, which includes the construction of the railroad, the logging industry, and the settlement of the Mescalero Apaches, who called the region “Pisacah,” meaning “a land of plenty.” The historic lodge in its heyday, the pioneer village, early farming and ranching, and life in a rough log cabin are all depicted in the photographs. Visit the General Store to purchase handmade trinkets.
9. Wine and Beer Tasting
If you favour chardonnay, pinot noir, petit Sirah, or the quadruple gold medal Ruidoso Bubbly, you’ll love the wines from Noisy Water Winery, which has five sites in the neighbourhood.
Pro tip: Try the acclaimed Besito Caliente Green Chile Wine for a truly unusual wine.

It all began in 1991 when two former theatre pals decided to stage a performance on the Chamber of Commerce’s back porch. Since then, it has only been melodramas after hats were handed around and money was raised. The CLOC offers Santaland, a holiday celebration featuring a bonfire, hot cocoa and cider, Christmas music, activities, and Santa.
