The Osha Trail in Cloudcroft, New Mexico, is a popular hiking destination known for its unique natural features. This 2.48-mile loop trail is rated as moderate, making it suitable for hikers with some experience. The trail is well-marked and maintained, with a steady incline that offers a moderate challenge. The trail is surrounded by a dense forest of fir and aspen trees, providing ample shade for hikers. Along the trail, hikers will encounter a variety of flora and fauna native to the region. The trail also offers panoramic views of White Sands National Park and the Tularosa Basin. One of the highlights of the Osha Trail is the presence of unique rock formations. These formations, shaped by years of erosion, add an element of interest to the hike. The trail also features a small creek that hikers will cross several times during their hike. For those planning to hike the Osha Trail, it is recommended to wear sturdy hiking boots due to the rocky terrain. Also, carrying a map of the trail is advised as there are several intersecting trails. The trail is open year-round, but the best time to visit is from April to October when the weather is most favorable.
