The canyons, cacti, and thorny bushes of the southern New Mexico desert hide one of the U.S.'s great subterranean geological wonders, Carlsbad Caverns National Park.
Explore Carlsbad Caverns National Park's surroundings by going to Runyan Ranches (in Mayhill), Guadalupe Mountains National Park (Guadalupe Peak, Permian Reef Geology Trail, & more) and Guadalupe Mountains National Park (in Salt Flat). There's still lots to do: explore the fascinating underground world of Big Room, explore the activities along Green Lake, take a memorable drive along Walnut Canyon Desert Drive, and get a dose of the wild on Carlsbad Caverns Natural Entrance Tour.
