Trail of the Ancients Scenic Byway (New Mexico)

The Trail of the Ancients is a New Mexico Scenic Byway to prehistoric archaeological and geological sites of northwestern New Mexico. It provides insight into the lives of the Ancestral Puebloans and the Navajo, Ute, and Apache peoples. Geological features include canyons, volcanic rock features, and sandstone buttes. Several of the sites are scenic and wilderness areas with recreational opportunities.

The Trail of the Ancients Scenic Byway was made one of the New Mexico Scenic Byways after July 31, 1998[1] and by 2013.[2] It was designated a National Scenic Byway by the Federal Highway Administration on January 19, 2021.

Note: Not the best source as not an official list, but it wouldn't have made it onto the list if it wasn't a byway; conversely there is one scenic drive (Dry Cimmaron) that is no longer a scenic byway
