Travel north of Ruidoso on highway 37 until the intersections of 246 (airport road) turn east for approximately 4 miles. Then turn right (south) on County road D004 (the road just west of the Spencer Theater). Travel approximately .5 miles to the second dirt road you encounter. Turn right on the second dirt road and the cemetery is 100 yards on the right. It is fenced and has a sign-in log for visitors.
