United States New Mexico Badlands

Bisti Badlands

Tips from the community

A true local gem (you’ll find no road signs pointing here), Bisti covers over 45,000 acres of New Mexico badlands. The landscape is wildly bizarre, featuring other-worldly rocks, colorful mounds, pinnacles, hoodoos and totems that look like they belong on the moon. There are no trails or markers beyond a parking lot, and you should plan to trek at least two miles into the desert before you start to see some of Bisti’s unique magic. Honorable Mentions: Billy the Kid Museum, Brazos Cliffs, Bosque Del Apache National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center, Bandlier National Monument
