Hiking & Mountain Biking

There's no place on Earth quite like White Sands National Monument. Glistening white dunes of gypsum, fossil footprints of ancient animals, unique geology and 800 species of animals all make this place a natural wonder. Bring a camera and sand sled for a daytime adventure, or visit during a full moon for a special moonlit walk. But from the Dripping Spring Natural Area to Picacho Peak, Las Cruces itself boasts hiking and mountain bike trails that show off southern New Mexico’s natural beauty. Spot wildlife, explore remnants of an ancient volcanic explosion and dramatic views of the Organ Mountains.
