These 14 Epic Mountains In New Mexico Will Drop Your Jaw

Mountain ranges shape and define the landscape of New Mexico, contributing to the state’s natural beauty. Although we don’t have any fourteeners like our neighbor, Colorado, we come pretty close. Whether you’re interested in scaling New Mexico’s peaks or just want to admire them, here are some of the best mountains that our state has to offer.

I’ve focused on peaks with high prominence, because they tend to be more dramatic. They’re listed by descending elevation (according to Peakbagger).

What’s your favorite peak or range in New Mexico? Do you prefer the views from the bottom or from the top? Share your experiences in the comments.
