"Sunset Stroll" White Sands National Monument Things to Do Tip by DrewV

  Part of the hike: a downhill slide
by DrewV

To take full advantage of viewing the dunes at the best time possible, take the Sunset Stroll, a ranger-led walk through the dunes. The ranger will explain the geology, botany, zoology, history, and future of the dunes, while allowing you to see the plants and animals that call the dunes home.

The crowds for the hike can be pretty large for weekends, as families from El Paso, Las Cruces, and Alamogordo come by. On a weekday, however, it's fantastic.
