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.

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.
