Lincoln National Forest: Grandview Trail

After lunch at the Texas Pit Barbeque Robby, Lee and I headed down the west side of the mountains towards High Rolls where we picked up the Grandview Trail. Like the Salado Canyon Trail which Noelle and I hiked to Bridal Veil Falls in May, the Grandview Trail followed an old railroad grade.

The hiking was pretty easy and we made our way through an old rock-cut to a view that was, indeed, grand.

 We rested in the small shelter there for a few minutes and then returned to the trail.

Soon we crossed a fence using a stile and made our way to the road, which we walked back to the car.
