Like No Place Else on Earth Rising from the heart of the Tularosa Basin is one of the world's great natural wonders - the glistening white sands of New Mexico. Great wave-like dunes of gypsum sand have engulfed 275 square miles of desert, creating the world's largest gypsum dunefield. White Sands National Monument preserves a major portion of this unique dunefield, along with the plants and animals that live here.

Beautiful and quiet.

very easy and beautifully unique. this trail hits some sweet spots where you are on top of the dunes with a 360 view of white sands. winter time is very cold. saw kids sledding like it was snow!

Wonderful hike!...our group enjoyed it! It took us 3 hours to complete! December is a great time to go there!

Amazing place!...loved it!
