Scenic & Historic Byways

Southeastern New Mexico has three state-designated scenic byways, one of which is a nationally designated byway:

  • Billy the Kid National Scenic Byway — Lincoln County
  • Guadalupe Back Country Scenic Byway – Eddy County
  • Sunspot Scenic Byway – Otero County

With the passing of the new transportation law MAP-21, there will no longer be a separate program for Scenic Byways.The new law does provide in its Transportation Alternatives, (formerly Enhancements), construction of turnouts, overlooks, and viewing areas.
