It's on the list for our upcoming desert trip. As long as the weather co-operates, we should be exploring Bisti in about 3 weeks!
Thanks Steve! We are very comfortable walking 'off trail' and venture off exploring everything and I'm starting to think 1 day might not be enough in Bisti and the other area close by. In Valley of Fire SP we ventured off trail and spent a full day in a 1 square mile area- just taking pictures, we couldn't stop.My two cents for Bisti would be to leave plenty of time and plan on a full day as there is lots of exploring to do-we hiked for over six hours and with so many photo ops, could have easily stayed longer. We met two other groups that were solely focused on seeing the "eggs" and the petrified wood- they hurried out and back on a beeline, with heads buried in their GPS without seeing anything else, apparently. Their loss! As has already been mentioned- there are no real trails- close to the parking lot at the end of our hike we met a solo guy who was loaded down with photo gear, but had turned back as he was not comfortable with wandering around in the untracked terrain (although route finding seemed simple enough to us).
