This Quaint Village in New Mexico is Considered a Hidden Gem
Nestled in the Lincoln Forest, at the heart of the Sacramento Mountains and at the highest elevation in New Mexico, nearly 8,700 feet above sea level, is this quaint village that many consider a hidden gem and where you'll find adventure at every corner.
I'm, of course talking about Cloudcroft! The small village that has a population of just over 700 and probably the best barbeque you'll ever have! Cloudcroft is about an hour from Ruidoso, another great little village to visit, and just about two hours away from El Paso.
Many El Pasoans, and New Mexicans, already know about how great Cloudcroft is, and now, thanks to Narcity, lots of others will know about it too.
Narcity calls Cloudcroft "breathtaking" and calls it a "hidden gem" and also adds about the wonderful winter weather:
During the winter months, Cloudcroft becomes a snowy wonderland where you can go ice skating, skiing, and tubing.
Just look at how beautiful the snow envelopes the small village turning it into a winter wonderland.
The famous Train Trestle is your sign that you have officially arrived to the village of Cloudcroft.
But Cloudcroft is even beautiful in the warmer months; and Burro Street, at the heart of Downtown Cloudcroft really comes alive. Filled with antique stores, jewelry stores and bakeries, you'll find everything you're looking for on Burro Street.
The drive up to Cloudcroft is just as breathtaking. When you want to disconnect from the world, this is the perfect place to go to.
