Tent Rocks is 30 miles south of Santa Fe, easy to get to and should not be missed. I might have missed it if 3 people in Santa Fe had not recommended it. The geology is unique but the 1.3 mile hike up the slot canyon to the ridge is special..One of the best slots I have been in. The... More

Wow, if you are anywhere near Santa Fe NM make sure to visit this amazing park. There is a hike through some slot canyons to some unique volcanic rock formations. It is otherworldly. The hike through the slot canyons is easy, then you do some elevation which is brief and not too difficult. Then reverse and see everything from a... More

This was an amazing hike. Yes it got tight and steep but at age 65, we made it all the way to the top. The view was great, both looking up to the rock tents and also looking down at them from the top. It was worth the huffing and puffing.

Gorgeous slot canyon with amazing geological formations. It was hot when we went hiking, but the narrow parts were cool and lovely. Views from the top are absolutely amazing. The first part of the hike is quite easy, but there are a few more challenging spots toward the top. This is a one of a kind hike, not to be... More

For flatlanders this trail is very difficult and requires patience to get up the 620 foot elevation...but once at the top....great view and great views on the way down of the tent rocks...take water and be careful on the loose rocks. Low wash areas prevent you from going faster than 20 mph....worth the visit.

This is a great hike for any level of hiker. I did most of it barefoot in a summer dress. The tent rocks and slot canyon itself was amazing. The view of the valley once you get to the top of the canyon made the whole experience even that much better. It's worth the slight detour off the highway!!

Tent Rocks was one of the most amazing places we have visited and one of the most beautiful hikes we have ever been on. Every turn in the path led to more beautiful scenery. We went all the way to the top and it was well worth the time. Beautiful view from the top. There was only one rather difficult... More

We heard about this place from friends. While we camped in ABQ we made the drive here( about 50 miles ). It was a wonderful scenic and quiet setting. The lower trail is 1.2 miles but very doable. We took our handy trekker poles and they worked well on the sandy and downhill sections.

Read the brochure and respect the Pueblo by leaving your camera elsewhere - though the scenery is truly spectacular - disconnect and explore the hiking trails through and up these volcanic rock formations. The memories you make will be priceless. The view from the top will take your breath away.

This is a beautiful place to visit. It isn't very crowded, but its unique appearance makes it very much worth the visit. A short wheelchair accessible loop trail takes you to the prehistoric cave, but the real gem here is the tougher trail up to the top of the formations, which requires you to be in reasonable shape. These two... More
