White Sands National Monument
20 mi 33 km of trail — 2 Featured Rides
Spanning 275 square miles of desert, the glistening sands of White Sands National Monument offer countless opportunities for discovery. Rising from the heart of the Tularosa Basin, these giant wave-like dunes create the world's largest gypsum dunefield. Although seemingly barren and stark, the dunes are home to an amazing diversity of life, and the national monument preserves a major portion of this unique dunefield and the plants and animals that live here.
Additionally, due to missile testing on the adjacent White Sands Missile Range, the road into the monument may be closed for periods of up to three hours. U.S. Highway 70/82 between Alamogordo and Las Cruces is also closed during missile testing. Visitors are encouraged to call the visitor center at (575) 479-6124 ext. 236 or 206 to verify that a closure is not in effect.
