Outdoor Recreation
Outdoor play spots in the greater surrounding landscape of Fort Bliss, west Texas and southern New Mexico were born from small bands of outdoor professionals and enthusiasts. Your Fort Bliss outdoor recreation experts at Southwest Adventure continue that tradition. We provide several high and low intensity activities which offer Soldiers, veterans, friends and Family, enlisted or otherwise, the chance to get out and explore, meet new people,learn new skills, challenge themselves and relax. This upcoming season we are offering big multiday trips to Canyonlands National Park, the Chiricahua National Monument, and Colorado area ski destinations.

In addition Southwest Adventure's guided trips and activities, we also have an equipment rental program, Biggs Paintball, Tango Tower, and 9 portable disc golf baskets. If there something you need help with to plan your own adventure, just let us know and we will help you out!
