The Unrivaled Canyon Hike In New Mexico Everyone Should Take At Least Once

Diablo Canyon is a spot that many have seen but few have been to. How is such a contradiction possible?

Well, this spot in New Mexico has been a popular movie location. It’s appeared in films like “Cowboys and Aliens,” “The Missing,” and “3:10 to Yuma.”

The BLM operates the Diablo Canyon Recreation Area. There are no admission or parking fees to use this land. However, neither are there any amenities. Bring anything you might need, including plenty of water.

Here are the directions.

There are plenty more hikes to discover in New Mexico. Some feature vibrant red rock formations, other trails lead you through unique places, and we even have a catwalk trail.

Which New Mexico hikes are on your bucket list?
