Loved our hike at Tent Rocks! This is such a unique place--definitely a "must see" if in the area. Don't forgot to bring your camera!

We stopped here on our way from Albuquerque to Santa Fe. An amazing hike with amazing views. A must do on Any trip to New Mexico. Bring your own water!!! And hike both trails. A total of 3.2 miles. Very doable for anyone in decent shape.

Nestled about 20 miles south of Santa Fe, this national monument is a great morning getaway out in the fresh air. It's a 1 1/2 mile climb up 630 feet through slot canyons. People of all ages were making the climb and the view from the top is spectacular. Great way to work off some of the calories from eating... More

The Tent Rocks site came highly recommended by some knowledgeable Santa Fe locals, but none of their praise came close to the actual experience. This site is spectacular. It's about a 40-minute drive SW of Santa Fe and well worth the time. Basically, you'll be walking among large-scale sculptures created out of the surrounding volcanic sediment by wind and water....

Fabulous value ($5 for the car), family friendly, easy walk among stunning natural beauty. Canyon trail well worth it, even if you turn around before you get halfway.

The Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument is just about 40 miles SW of Santa Fe and is a great diversion from all the goodies in downtown Santa Fe. If you have a National Park Pass, it will get you in to this primitive area and there are a couple of hiking options for the seasoned or novice hiker. Just a... More

Quite a surprise between Albuquerque and Santa Fe, and only a short distance off the highway. It is an otherworldly landscape like the 'fairy chimney' formations in Cappadocia, Turkey. Take lots of water - there's none at the site.

Don't miss this if you are in Santa Fe and finally get tired of galleries and studios. It's an easy drive (though the signage on the highway, 25, is terrible and easy to miss). The formations are spectacular and weird and there are two nice trails--short and easy and long and steep. Do go early and do bring water. We... More

This place has everything! Easy and more difficult trails, cool slot canyons and little more strenuous climbs, spectacular scenery and interesting formations. Go early to beat the heat of the day. Bring your own food and water. Great picnic shelters in the parking lot as well as toilets. A photographer's delight. $10/car fee unless you have a National Park pass.

I had been to Santa Fe several times but had never heard of this place. Just by accident we overheard someone talking about it and decided to go. I am so glad we did. It was amazing. The hike was a little more than just a hike if your not use to that type of thing. Make sure you bring... More
