The Full Moon Hike In New Mexico You Absolutely Must Participate In

While if you’re a New Mexican, you’ve probably been to our most incredible oasis—White Sands National Monument—you’ve never seen it quite like this. Every time a full moon comes around, the park rangers put together a moonlight hike to learn about the animals that survive in the White Sands, and experience them like never before. Get ready for a truly otherworldly experience as the sun goes down and a full moon guides this magical hike.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

Have you ever seen the White Sands under a full moon’s glow? What did you think? Let us know in the comments, and don’t forget to share photos from your experiences with us in our New Mexico Nature Lovers Facebook group, or tag us on Instagram by tagging #onlyinnewmexico for a chance to be featured!

Not to scare you, but while you’re at White Sands you might want to think about their trail that has a bone-chilling history tied to it.
