Monjeau Lookout Climb
If painful climbs to beautiful views sound like fun, this is a great choice. It's uphill all the way with the steepest sections near the top. Near the top you'll start seeing great vistas toward Ruidoso, the Capitan Mountains and Sierra Blanca. The views are so good that the Forest Service still uses the fire lookout at the top.

- 2220 feet
How to get there:
Go north from Ruidoso in NM 48 and then turn left on Ski Run Road toward Ski Apache. The dirt road to the right to Monjeau is about one mile from NM 48.
