This place is off the beaten track, about an hour's drive north from Albuquerque. The road is paved the whole way to the main parking lot. The $5 per car admission fee is one of the best bargains anywhere. There are two main trails: the Cave and the Canyon. You need to be in reasonable shape to do the Cave,... More

This is a really unique place. It would be fine to just look around and take a short hike to see the "tent rocks", but hiking to the top of the canyon provides the best experience. We were there on a HOT June day, and plenty of water is required. At the top the view is beautiful and probably different... More

A strenuous hike up a slot canyon with spectacular views and some seriously awesome geology. In February it was pretty quiet.

Beautiful views and easy family-friendly hiking trails. Don't miss the drive up the Veteran's Memorial Scenic Overlook for breathtaking views and an easy hike.

This place was really cool . The slot canyon was really awesome,and the the little tent rocks with the boulders on top look like giant trichomes😉 . Hike to the top of the slot cannon trail the view of the surrounding area is incredible.

Tent rocks park has 2 trails, both approx. 1.5 miles each. The slot canyon trail will take you thru incredible verticle views of the surrounding tent like pinnacles upwards of 500 feet elevation! When you come to the end of the slot hike you traverse several hundred feet straight up to a vista point wherein you look out at a... More

What an experience this is. To hike around all the formations that look like something totally out of this world. The photography options are limitless with the different times of day and the colors that evolve off the rocks and the crystal blue vibrant sky. The hike can be very easy or difficult there is also handicap options. This is... More

Heard about this place from my daughter, she told me its a nice place to hike with nice view along the way to the top. So the whole family went last MLK day, and I have no regrets visiting this place, it was a little bit icy and slippery on some areas due to snow but if you are careful... More
