One thing to note for locals or those traveling by car through New Mexico-the park is strict about no dogs being allowed in. The tent rocks can be seen by car from a distance and you can park and walk at their bases and I suggest if you have a decent car do both. Take the Veteran's Road first to... More

We were not able to do the whole park due to weather but I would definitely go back. We started the first path to the caves and took the turn to hike to the top. It was beautiful and worth the time. Watch out for storms! We were caught in a storm on our way down and flash floods started... More

Tent Rocks is a great day of hiking and sight seeing. It's impossible to take a bad photo among the formations and it's never been crowded when we've gone. Take a picnic with plenty of water. It's a great winter hike and there are picnic tables at the bottom to rest and refresh yourselves.

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.
