Bisti Badlands information
This undeveloped realm of multicolored hoodoos, sculpted cliffs and balancing rocks is 38 miles south of Farmington, off Hwy 371. Follow the well-worn (but unmaintained) path from the parking area for a mile to reach the heart of the formations, then wander as you will, taking care not to damage the fragile geology. Overnight camping is allowed – dawn and dusk are the most spectacular times – but you have to haul in all your water. Farmington’s BLM office has information.
