Silver City

Silver City Travel Guide

Drive along Highway 152, between Truth or Consequences and Silver City, through the nearly deserted, former silver boomtowns of Hillsboro and Kingston. Each has numerous original (sometimes abandoned) buildings from the region’s late-19th-century heyday.

Take a vigorous, steep-sloped mountain-bike ride through Boston Hill, a large park overlooking Silver City where trails weave through old silver-mining encampments and plunging ravines.

Hike & Bike has one of the area’s better rental selections.
