I would recommend a compass or Garmin if you go hiking...once you loose sight of the parking lot there aren't any landmarks. Bring lots of water. The terrain is easy for walking with tennis shoes. This is like a totally different world. There are a variety of unique geological sites and petrified wood is abundant.
Bisti hiking provides beautiful desert scenery. From the western entrance, you must hike about a mile to reach the interesting rock formations. Look for arches and petrified rocks. Caution: take water as none is available and know your location since in some of the canyons you can feel disoriented.
I had just finished 6 days of walking through the Mesa Verde area including all 3 trails in the Canyon of the Ancients. I decided to stop by Bisti Badlands when I caught sight of the trail on the AllTrails.com web site. I'm glad that I did. Bisti is about 60 miles south of Farmington. To get to the trail... 更多
The Bisti wilderness area is a unique desert environment. It is certainly off the beaten track. It is pure, untamed and unspoiled by modern civilization. No facilities, no rangers, no entrance fees, no clear hiking trails. Only a basic parking lot and a couple of signs and information panels. So, look at the sky: if it rains or looks like... 更多
One of the many nature wonderlands in the SW of the US. In 2016 we made our 3rd visit to the Bistis - this time accompanied by our son and his girlfriend. We thought they had to see this unique spot and they were impressed like us, when we visited the Bistis for the first time in 2009. It's a... 更多
Bisti wilderness is one of the USA's most unique desert environments. There are multiple variations of hoodoos and bizzare rock formations. Each time I have hiked here I have found something different. Lots of petrified trees on my last trip. You can enter from road 371 south of Farmington, or the less used entrance from Hwy 550, just north of... 更多
It took us longer to get to the Bisti Wilderness than we expected (hard to get there from where we were), so we arrived later than we had hoped. Started walking (maps were not much use). Then we walked some more, and then some more. Then -- we walked into some of the most unusual rock formations we have ever... 更多
We live close by so we make several trips out to the Bisti every year. I love the beautiful formations and different fossils you can find. Some of the formations look absolutely magical! Wear good hiking shoes and bring enough water. It can be pretty hot in the summer. There are no facilities close by so come prepared. Beautiful place... 更多
Another trip by Salmon Ruins director Larry Baker. This was very unique. A must have trip. It is about a 2 mile hike. If you go in hot weather you must have lots of sun screen, proper skin protection; hat, long sleeves and water, water, water!!
