High Altitude Classic Race Course is a fun Loop that starts and finishes in downtown Cloudcroft. The trail is a mix of steepish rocky singletrack climbs and descents, some fire road, and flowy old school forest single track.

Access Info

Trail starts and ends at the Village ball field at the end of Mescalero Ave. Trail head is just past the transfer station on the right. Look for yellow trail arrows along the way. The trail passes through Pins Camp Ground and is signed with small FS Trail arrows.
