Easy to find. Go first thing in the AM if in the summer months. Wear good shoes. Good facilities. Water and sunscreen are a must. Wheelchair access to a certain point.

While visiting Albuquerque, we made the trip to the Tent Rocks for a great day of hiking! Less than an hour from Albuquerque, it's a scenic drive. The Monument has parking with picnic area and restroom at the start of the path. There are 2 options to see these unique rock formations and, if you're able, walk the longer canyon... More

Yes, you can experience the exciting squeeze of a narrow slot canyon on the Slot Canyon hike that takes you up to a rocky perch from which you can get incredible views of the Sangre de Cristo mountains. But be aware of the weather....if there are rainstorms there or even just nearby, flash floods within the slot canyon would be... More

This monument protects a unique landscape where wind and water have eroded layers of sediment from volcanic eruptions 6-7 million years ago into tent-like hoodoos and narrow twisting canyons. The park is located about an hour north of Albuquerque and 30-45 minutes west of Santa Fe. To reach it, take I-25 to exit 259 and head west on NM22, following... More

This is about a 3 hour hike. Bring lots of water and climbing shoes. You are exposed for most of the hike and shade is sometimes hard to find. I had a boot on due to a stress fracture but with help from my husband I almost made it it the top! It is most unusual and worth the effort.

Beautiful hiking and very unusual rock formations. Not as crowded as some of the other National Monuments. We very much enjoyed this 3 hour hike.

The entire Tent Rocks hike is other worldly! The hike is only mildly challenging and worth the time and effort to do. Our kids loved scrambling over, under and around the rock formations. Be sure to see the cave! I won't submit pictures because I do not want to ruin the beautiful surprise!

This is a one of a kind hike. Don't miss the trail through the slotted canyon. The main loop is pretty, but the canyon is the best part of the hike. You will want to bring water and your camera.

THis is my second time here, but amazing every time I go. Looks like a Hollywood set. You can go at your own pace, and walk as far as you want. Unfortunately, this time I could not go to the top. Check out the petroglyphs on the way up

If you are in the area, you have to do this! Depending on your age and mobility, you may want to bring a trekking pole. We saw all ages and stages doing this hike. Bring water and maybe a energy bar depending on the trail you choose.. The pictures you take will be unforgettable. Get a senior pass before you... More
