The Hurd Gallery can be visited by driving down the highway a couple miles. A fishing spot open to the public on the Rio Ruidoso is available for fishing just a few miles down the highway as well. It has been reported that this arroyo contained a cienega many years ago which was a marshy area fed by a spring, before groundwater wells ran it dry. Most cienegas are now extinct in the southwest. Sheep and Firewood were the main commodities produced off of this ranch before cattle became dominant. NM State Land is 640 of these acres which requires an annual permit for recreational use.

Or head to Ski Apache Resort and Recreation Area in winter from a group campground equipped for camper trailers and tents with picnic tables, electric hookups, toilets, and showers near Sierra Blanca Peak. Hiking and horseback riding enthusiasts will want to make a stop at Lincoln National Forest, just an hour south of Ruidoso. Stop by Rainbow Lake on the way during summer to cool off before hitting Lincoln’s hiking trails. A short hike can also be combined with a scenic drive around the glistening gypsum landscape of White Sands. Nearby, there are an array of camping areas to choose from like glamping sites, RV resorts, off-the-grid tent campsites, and pet-friendly campgrounds that help turn a day trip to the forest into a longer getaway.
