Dripping Springs Natural Area Is One Of The Most Underrated Places In New Mexico

When many New Mexicans are looking for a beautiful place to spend time outdoors, they head to White Sands National Park or Carlsbad Caverns National Park. While these areas and many others in the Land of Enchantment are pretty remarkable, there is one area located in Southern New Mexico that tends to be forgotten — Dripping Springs Natural Area. With incredible hiking trails, excellent wildlife viewing opportunities, beautiful scenery, and more, this is certainly one of the most underrated places in New Mexico.
