Beauty lies in so many remote and UNcommercialized places throughout New Mexico. Not many people know about Tent Rocks, however, it is definitely worth the 35 minute drive off of I-25 out to the Cochiti Pueblo and the short hike back to see this other-worldly spectacular area. A photographers dream, much like the toadstool rocks near Escalante, Utah. While you... More

This place is a must visit for anyone visiting Santa fe or Albuquerque. Its very unique and the hike to the top is not so hard, even though it calls out to be a hard hike in their website. On the way back we took the cave loop which is just 0.2 miles more and worth the visit to the... More

A quick 30 mile drive out of Santa Fe and we arrived at the beautiful landscape. Check forecast before heading out. The slot canyons and overall landscape was so beautiful. Make sure and bring camera, backup memory card, and batteries! Highly recommended!

After seeing photos online about Tent Rocks, I just had to add it to my "must see" list and what a spectacular addition!!! Seriously everywhere we looked the sights were absolutely stunning. Even though it was 12 degrees when we started the hike, we became motivated to do both trails because of the breathtaking views. This is an absolute must... More

I wore hiking shoes and a wide brimmed hat. I carried a backpack with bottled water and snacks, which I partook of when I took a break from the hiking through the scenic slot canyons. Hike all the way to the end and enjoy the panoramic views.

While the official brochure states that the entrance gate is open until 4pm and the park closes at 5pm in the winter, they make you get off the trails and order you back in your car at 4pm. Not sure why the bureau of land mgmt employees are so rude compared to national park rangers. Now the site itself is... More

Visiting this park and seeing the wonderful stone structures doesn't take a lot of time, is a fairly easy hike to the top, and is well worth it.

What a wonderful hike. We accidentally didn't pay attention to the signs and ended up going all the way up the 'mountain' with a 2 year old toddler strapped to our chest. Do-able, but she wasn't impressed. I think we ended up hiking for about 2 plus hours in total. We saw two huge spiders, at least one was a... More

Awesome hiking! Went over thanksgiving weekend and the weather was perfect for a tshirt and pants. About 45 minutes outside of Santa Fe. Be sure to pack water and some snacks. $5 per vehicle to enter. The slot canyon trail is beautiful- make SURE you hike to the very end of the trail where there are 360 degree beautiful views.

This is one of the most wonderful day trips in the state. The hike is fabulous and the scenery is first rate. Unfortunately people are discovering it and it is busy much of the time. We were here last winter just after some snow and it was beautiful though icy and dangerous in spots, there was a string of people... More
