New Mexico (NM) hiking offers a wide range of terrain to explore from snow-capped peaks to vast wilderness areas.
Northern New Mexico brings hikers to Santa Fe National Forest where trails stretch out within its deep wilderness. Forested trails run under the thick tree canopy, and the nearby Rocky Mountain's Sangre de Cristo Mountains provide steep, difficult trails for the avid hiker. Central New Mexico offers trails that explore deep wilderness, grasslands, and deserts in the Gibola National Forest.
Southern New Mexico brings hikers to Gila National Forest where the hiking trails abound. Paths run through the Blue Range Wilderness where hikers can climb steep trails to summit rugged mountains. Deep canyons and semi-desert terrain also have plenty of trails for hikers to explore. Make sure to hike to hot springs in the area, and don't forget to check out trails near cities like Albuquerque and Santa Fe.
