Description

Billy the Kid

Lincoln County and the Billy the Kid National Scenic Byway are rich in history. Native Americans, the U.S. Cavalry, miners, cowboys, trappers, hunters, ranchers, outlaws and pioneers have all left their mark. Great ranches, ghost towns, mining camps, and Mexican villages can still be seen unspoiled in this beautiful drive and diverse country. From the heights of 12,000’ Sierra Blanca to the rolling pastures of Fort Stanton and the streams of the quiet valleys, this area has something to offer everyone. Take some time to discover our version of paradise.

Stop by the Billy the Kid National Scenic Byway Visitors Center located right next door to the Hubbard Museum of the American West in Ruidoso Downs. Exhibits in the visitor center explore some of the many attractions found along the Byway. The friendly staff can help you with the information you need to plan a stay in Lincoln County while you explore the Billy the Kid National Scenic Byway.
