Description
With skiing in winter, golfing, horseback riding, camping, hiking and fishing in spring and summer and the fall foliage beauty of aspen trees highlighting autumn, Ruidoso is among New Mexico's premier year-round mountain playgrounds. It's such a popular destination, in fact, that making travel reservations several months in advance is advisable for holiday weekends.
The natural backdrop—the heavily forested Sacramento Mountains within Lincoln National Forest—is sublime. The resort community that now extends for 10 miles along the Ruidoso River had inauspicious beginnings in the 1890s as a trading post, and an old waterwheel from that era still stands on Main Street.
