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.

You get a little loopy after staring at white sand dunes for a while, but it’s a unique experience that you shouldn’t miss. Love this park.

This was a tough but beautiful trail!!! Bring lots of water and take your time to enjoy the wonder. We signed up to camp and hiked the whole trail with our packs looking for the campsite. We never found the campsite but learned later the campsites are in a different trail.

Absolutely beautiful and the dunes are amazing. Even when it was a bit chilly outside, we were pretty hot and got dehydrated. Bring lots of water and snacks! 10/10 would do again.

Great place to take your dog and let them run around. Also beautiful sunsets and you can ride sleds

This is a truly unique hiking experience. It was much more challenging than I expected due to a lot of climbing some pretty decent dunes with soft sand.

If you bring a dog, most definitely bring some poop bags with you. This isn't the place to leave pet mess.

And don't forget to bring lots of water, even if you plan to hike only part of the way.

One of a kind experience! Hiking in early morning or early evening in the is best IMHO due to cooler temperature, higher chances of spotting wildlife, and excellent shading on the sand dunes. We were there early September.
