It was amazing!! My husband and I got there around 6pm, so we could not go all the way in. But, there are so many amazing rock formations from the beginning of the trail. We loved every step of our hike. Thanks to Kelly H for the map!!

I didn't do the full loop because I ran out of sun light. A sunset overlooking Pueblo Bonito is not a bad sight my friends. One of the most spiritual sunsets I have ever experienced. Do it.

Took the dog on this trail. The start was intense for the dog, but he handled it well. Zero shade once up top.

I never did see the formation in the picture but I was off the trail for most of the hike.

Spent a clear May night gazing at stars and the milky way. There is no established trail, so it can be tricky navigating at night. Make sure you have offline maps for this hike. Great foreground for astrophotography.

Beautiful hoodoos without the crowds. The farthest side, has more interesting formations including "The Alien Throne" and is lit up exquisitely during the sunset golden hour.

The Bisti Badlands’ hoodoos are a rare and special geographic destination for any adventurous soul. We found the land to be pure and welcoming, with wild horses, coyotes, and deer. There is no shade on this trail and it would be best explored in the spring and fall. BE ADVISED: The trail highlighted in red for The Valley of Dreams loop on AllTrails is inaccurate. The actual trail to the hoodoos is adjacent to the highlighted trail on it’s eastern edge. The actual trail runs straight north until it reaches the foot of the hoodoos and then loops around the beautiful formations. We did not find the trail easy to follow and mostly navigated using GPS and the AllTrails map.

This was our favorite hike in Bisti. The trail is fairly well marked but AllTrails has the wrong one marked in red. This is an out and back and is seen just north of the one marked here. Follow the route that Kelly H. recorded. After 8 miles on a graded dirt road you have to turn off onto a rutted primitive road. We had to stop about 200 yds short of the trailhead in our RV - it was a little crazy and I wouldn’t recommend it without more clearance. The trail is fairly well marked and had the most amazing formations of the 4 hikes we did here. Definitely try it!

The King of Wings rock formation was awesome. The “trail” however is horrible. It is a 2.5 mile walk through short desert scrub. Boring and flat until the very end. Without GPS you would never find this place. We got to the “trailhead” in an RV after 10 miles of graded but washboard dirt road and another 1 mile of a rutted, primitive road. There is no parking area but there are several fairly level places to pull out near the end. If you have several days in Bisti then by all means check it out. If you only have a day then I’d recommend other trails.

Agree with previous posts about it looking like another planet. Lots of great photos. 66 degree today but felt much warmer out there with no shade.

I didn't know how long and muddy the road was going to be or I may not have attempted the drive in the winter. Get gas first because there is not any services at all nearby. However, the park was astonishing once I got to it and the Peublo Alto Trail was breathtaking. In the winter I had the whole park to myself. There is a welcome center and you must sign in and carry a permit.

Easy trail following a wash. Very interesting rock formations at this eastern entrance to Bisti. At the 3 foot drop off, cross the wash and follow the trail leading up to higher ground. Great photography awaits you. The heavily weathered petrified wood is all over the place, including the wash. Leave it where you find it, rock shops have tons of the stuff and it's usually in better shape.

Pay attention to park hours. It closed at 4:00 pm on March 25th, 2019, not at sunset as signs said in the park! Also, warning the last 4 miles of the northeast dirt road entrance was washboard (very bumpy). Took half hour to go 4 miles. But the Park was excellent! The hiking was somewhat like bouldering in places, very fun, and was well marked.

a wonderful hike! I highly recommend! be sure to only go during October thru April. otherwise way too hot. Lots of hoodoos to explore.

It certainly is a menagerie of geologic formations, loved it! We followed the directions here to a start and left— almost got stuck; like MsJennifer says — I’d strongly recommend going to the designated parking area and working from there.
