Day 4: Lincoln National Forest

Lincoln National Forest has incredibly varied landscapes and ecosystems, from sub-alpine forests and to the Chihuahua desert. There are plenty of recreation and camping opportunities in the forest: Visitors can enjoy hikes and camping in Capitan Mountain and White Mountain wilderness areas. For history buffs or Billy the Kid fans, the Billy the Kid scenic byway offers a tour of the famous outlaw's old haunts.
