National Parks in New Mexico

The Land of Enchantment’s National Treasures


From ancient ruins to extinct volcanoes and plenty of hiking trails in between, the 13 national parks of New Mexico have something for everyone. Attracting approximately 1.5 million annual visitors, the Land of Enchantment makes it easy for the National Park Service.

Certainly the most well-known park in New Mexico, the Carlsbad Caverns National Park features its world-famous 119-cave system – that we know of so far. Enjoy self-guided or ranger-led cave tours, and be sure to see the nightly flight of the cave’s primary residents – Brazilian free-tailed bats. Set in Carlsbad in southern New Mexico, Carlsbad Caverns also features a park museum and visitor center.

If ancient ruins are the name of your game, New Mexico has your answer. The Albuquerque area features a multitude of ruins preserved by the National Park Service. Explore the Salinas Pueblo Missions National Monument and the El Morro National Monument for ancient settlements, plus inscriptions from the past at the Petroglyph National Monument.

Northern New Mexico is also home to the Aztec Ruins National Monument and the Chaco Culture National Historical Park – both near Bloomfield. Check out more petroglyphs and ancient dwellings at Bandelier National Monument and Pecos National Historical Park – both near Santa Fe – plus the Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument north of Lordsburg and Deming, and Fort Union National Monument near Las Vegas.

Capulin Volcano National Monument, set near Raton, features an extinct cinder cone volcano – plus plenty of recreation. Visitors find incredible views of the Land of Enchantment at the top of the two-mile Volcano Road, while others may enjoy hiking, biking, auto touring, picnicking, and nature viewing.

Sticking to the volcano theme, the El Malpais National Monument – also set near Albuquerque – includes hiking, nature viewing, and picnicking along with caving. Check out the El Calderon Area or the Big Tubes Area, and maybe get started on the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail from the El Malpais Information Center.

Set near Alamogordo, White Sands National Monument features everything from stargazing to sledding – plus your usual park activities like hiking, picnicking, and auto tours along the Dunes Drive. White Sands is also known for its photography opportunities, their ranger-lead Sunset Strolls, and even Full Moon Bike Rides.

No matter the age, visitors to New Mexico’s national parks are delighted by their beauty, history, and unique outdoor opportunities. Be sure to find your favorite park during your time in the Land of Enchantment.
