Good evening,

You'll love Cloudcroft...however there are some trails (the real nice ones) that are limited to under 50"...so you wouldn't be able to take your Ranger on them. Below is a link to trail map of Lincoln National Forest, Cloudcroft area.
http://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_...rdb5354548.pdf
There's not a NEED to carry a pistol...I always do. Watch out for free ranging cattle, there all over the place up there. Rio Penasco is nice fire road, Benson Ridge road, Davis rd (64) would be real nice on a Ranger. Take Sunspot highway to 64, dump off right there and follow the road...goes all the way to Sacramento...beautiful country. Watch for trucks and trailers on that road...a lot of traffic and small 1 1/2 lane fire road. Let me know if you have any more questions...I'm up there every weekend.

Mike

Not sure how active this forum and thread is.

Just moved to El Paso last year. Looking for recommendations on where to trailhead for full days of trails for ATV riding. I think I would rent a cabin in Cloudcroft or camp, and shuttle to trailhead UNLESS any of you are familiar with campgrounds etc.. that you can ride direct to trail heads.

Any suggestions is appreciated.

Welcome! If you go to post number 7 you'll see a link I posted that lists all the ATV trails up in Cloudcroft. Not many of the campgrounds will be open now...most of them open in May. But you can dry camp just about anywhere.
