Chihuahuan Desert Nature Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The self- guided trail explores the biodiversity of the Chihuahuan Desert at Carlsbad Caverns National Park with interpretive signs that identify desert plants, animals, and native cultures. The trail can be hiked in either direction, but the signs are numbered counterclockwise along the described route.

The trail is closed in the evenings during the warmer months to avoid disturbing the flight of the Brazilian free- tailed bats exiting Carlsbad Caverns. The bats roost in the Bat Cave section of the cavern from April to October."
