Probably the best time to visit is late October / early November when the Cottonwoods are changing color. By mid November most of the Cottonwoods have changed color. In 2015 the Cottonwood just outside the visitor center still had color on December 1st.
So anyway, how much time do you need at White Sands National Monument?
Even, what shoes should I wear to White Sands? If you are on the sand, you will have to be barefooted to climb up the dunes. On the roads, you can wear sandals or any kind of walking shoe. The sand is not really sand, it is gypsum . It is very soft and cool to,the touch.
Suitably, is White Sands National Monument worth it?
White Sands National Monument is an extremely beautiful place and definitely worth the stop if you find yourself in that part of the United States. The white sand dunes are like nothing I've ever seen before, comprised predominantly of the mineral called gypsum.
Can you rent sleds at White Sands?
They rent for $10 used, but if you bring them back they will refund you $3 per sled. Make sure you bring your camera, I probably snapped about 200 photos of my children sledding, rolling, and making sand angels !

"But it can be really dangerous because it gets so hot." The problem is that once the heat picks up, hikers feel it from both overhead and from below, because the white sand reflects so much of the energy, Gibbs said. The park turns into an outdoor oven. Frias Sauter said the park, while "gorgeous," can be deceiving.
Effective Jan. 1, 2019, the entrance fees to the park will be $20 per vehicle, $10 per person and $15 per motorcycle. For instance, a car with three passengers would pay the $20 per vehicle fee and not $30 for the three individual passengers. There are also five fee-free days each year.
