On day two of our trip to Cloudcroft we did mile 3.5 to 7.7 along the Rim Trail T105. We started the hike at Rim Trail Parking #3 along the Sun Spot Highway. Unlike Rim Trail Parking 1, 2 and 4 there was no sign along the road. The trail head is along a dirt road that leaves the highway. From this trail head we hiked north to our turn around point yesterday then headed south until we got to mile 7.7 where the sign indicating Parking #4.

This is a very Pleasant hike through pine/fir forest and a couple of meadows. The forest of Lincoln National Forest are among some of the nicest forests I have seen. Views along the trail over Tularosa Basin and to the north of Sierra Blanca near Ruidoso are excellent although today it was a bit dusty to see much of anything. This is a well maintained trail, easy to follow but in a few spots rocky, the kind that get under your feet and you feel like you’re on roller skates.

There was no wildlife to report other than the elk along the road on the way back to the cabin. Other than a number of wild roses and the New Mexico Locust Trees the flowers were scarce, The spring blooms were gone and waiting for the monsoon bloom. There was no water along the trail as the winter snow runoff was complete and like Arizona waiting for the monsoons.
