Angel Peak Trail: Bureau of Land Management Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Discover the mystery of the Angel Peak Scenic Area and the Four Corners’ version of the badlands. The beauty of the landscape will amaze hikers visiting this magical area. This 1.6-mile out-and-back hike takes hikers along a narrow ridge and out into badlands for amazing views of Angel Peak. Photographers should consider an evening/sunset hike to capture the perfect picture.
Hikers and photographers alike will find this little-known area quite exciting. While there are very limited established trails, there are plenty of hiking options along the canyon rim. Located near Bloomfield, New Mexico, and rising up nearly 7,000 feet, Angel Peak is considered a landmark in the area. The monolith can be seen from quite a distance in any direction. While the peak itself is quite impressive, the surrounding badlands are equally scenic."
