The Little-Known New Mexico Town Off The Beaten Path That’s So Worth A Day Trip

High Rolls is a tiny New Mexico ville that most people have never heard of. It’s in Otero County, just west of Cloudcroft. Nestled near the Sacramento Mountains and the Lincoln National Forest, High Rolls, and neighboring Mountain Park, are just far enough off the beaten path that they offer a pleasant break from the city. High Rolls has some fun shops to browse and easy forest paths that offer stunning views. Plus, there is great food and accommodations nearby.
