You Had No Idea This New Mexican National Monument Is Home To A Bone Chilling Haunted Trail

Hiking in New Mexico is plentiful, but we’ll bet you had no idea that a hike within one of our state’s most beautiful monuments is home to a bone-chilling legend. While upon this open space hike, you’ll want to look out for a ghost that’s clothed in white, just at sunset. This hike might seem innocent to those who don’t know the history, but legend has it that our White Sands are haunted with tales from long ago, and they don’t seem to be leaving anytime soon.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
