Ruidoso is located in the south-central part of New Mexico, about halfway between Albuquerque and El Paso. The area is not on a major interstate highway but has excellent state highway access from the north, east, and west. With this area being a drivers
market, you will need a vehicle to get from your cabin to wherever you want to pursue. During the winter months during inclement weather, a 4-wheel drive will be advisable.
Sierra Blanca Regional Airport services private aircraft in and out of Ruidoso. If you choose to fly via commercial airline, check fares to Albuquerque (180 miles), El Paso (130 miles), and Roswell (75 miles, with daily service to and from Dallas and Phoenix).
