The multi-colored hues of the forest in fall make it the best time for hikes and horseback riding, and a great opportunity to snap a family photo. In spring, as the flowers begin to bloom, mountain biking becomes a fantastic option, in addition to activities like fishing and bird-watching.

    Revealing Ruidoso's climate

    Year-round precipitation and moderate temperatures are the key weather characteristics of a subtropical highland climate, and these features have gifted Ruidoso with its lush scenery.

In July, temperatures can reach as high as 81°F, making it the best time for outdoor activities. If you've got your heart set on long strolls in Lincoln National Forest and hikes around the Sierra Blanca mountains, make sure you book your central Ruidoso vacation rental well in advance of this popular period.
