Discover the ancient caves in southern New Mexico.

Carlsbad Caverns National Park is located in the Chihuahuan Desert of southern New Mexico. Hidden beneath the surface are over 100 caves naturally formed by sulfuric acid dissolving into the limestone. The Natural Entrance is a path into the park's namesake, Carlsbad Cavern. Be awe-inspired at the stalactites clinging to the roof of the Big Room, a vast underground chamber in the cavern. Be aware that reservations are required to enter the cavern and must be booked in advance. Visitors can enter the cave between 8:30 am and 2:30 pm.

Walnut Canyon Desert Loop is a scenic drive with views of the desert landscape. At Rattlesnake Springs, you will see the wetland which attracts reptiles and hundreds of bird species. Animals that live in the park include bats, foxes, weasels, toads, raccoons, turtles, bighorn sheep, lizards, deer, squirrels, rabbits, and more. Ancient sea ledges, rocky canyons, flowering cactus plants, and desert wildlife can be seen and explored above ground at the park. Walnut Canyon Overlook features a short, paved walkway and takes about 5 minutes to hike. The Guadalupe Ridge Trail is the longest hiking trail, which spans over 20 miles and is ideal for backpackers. Enjoy a trip to Carlsbad Caverns National Park with your friends and family.
