El Malpais National Monument Information

El Malpais: Sandstone Bluffs
Sandstone Bluffs overlooks millions of years of geologic history, from the 200-million year-old sandstone formed by ancient seas, to the 3000 year-old lava that borders the bluffs. Click here to download information on a great viewing point over the lava flows and lands surrounding El Malpais.

El Malpais Wilderness
Over 85% of El Malpais National Monument is a Wilderness Study Area: an area set aside because of their uniquely wild character, where evidence of humans is minimal. Click here to download information on the lava flows and caves of this unspoiled place.

El Malpais: Zuni-Acoma Trail
The Zuni-Acoma Trail is one of many ancient routes that connects the pueblos of Zuni and Acoma. Many of the rock cairns and lava bridges built by the Ancestral Puebloans are still used to hike the route today. Click here to download information on this trail, which traverses 7.5 miles of rugged lava flows, taking six to seven hours to hike one way.
