Lincoln National Forest ??

I am making a trip to the Lincoln National Forest in New Mexico in Oct and was wondering if someone had any track files for the area aound
Cloudcroft (for the trails). I have ridden the roads in the area many times, but just now have a bike that can handle the trails.

Thanks much for any help that can be provided.

There is a Forest Ranger Station in CLoudcroft. I would recommend going there to talk to them. They are extremely helpful and they have trail handouts and maps for sale that show all the trails. A word of caution, all the singletrack trails in the area have become wide ATV superhighways, with a lot of rocks and rut's everywhere!
