Explore Faulkner Canyon

Interesting canyon with Billy the Kid's black hill hideout. There are also some very colorful rock formations along the canyon.

The drive in the canyon is very sandy so a good vehicle is required. In the canyon is the black hill where Billy the Kid and 3 of his friends were hiding out. Was not able to find their names inscribed on one of the rocks. 

There are also remnants of an old ranch. Nice walk along a sandy arroyo with some colorful rocks.
