The Upper Canyon, is one of Ruidoso’s most scenic and historic areas. Located in the southwest corner of Ruidoso, the area is known for summer homes, and rental cabins located near the Rio Ruidoso River, and under a canopy of towering pine and fir trees.
Wildlife is abundant in this area of Ruidoso. Bear, elk, and deer are just a few of the larger animals seen here, as the area is adjacent to heavy forest to the southwest which are part of the Mescalero BIA tribal lands.
The Upper Canyon has spectacular fall foliage with golden aspens, oaks and cottonwood trees that grow along the river.
Properties for sale along the Rio Ruidoso River will typically be priced much higher than non-river properties.
