We visited the Tent Rocks in July of 2015. The park was pretty quiet on a late afternoon mid-week. We elected to take both trails, including the more challenging Canyon Slot trail - this was definitely worth it! It gets a bit tricky at points and you can feel the impact of the high elevation toward the end of the... More

Despite needing to stop multiple times on the way up the Slot Canyon path to the peak, the effort was well worth it - the views were amazing from the top and along the climb. It was extremely hot when we did the hike - although we brought plenty of water, we made the mistake of not bringing food or... More

We had not heard about the Tent Rocks National Monument. It's less than an hour drive from Santa Fe and well worth it. The hike is about 3 miles round trip. The rock formations are unique and everywhere around you. Along the way, you hike a short slot canyon and then ascend to a 360-degree panoramic view of the entire... More

There are 2 trails that you can take when you get here, one is more difficult than the other. i went there with a skirt on and opted not to be climbing over rocks. I would advise people not to wear sandals though because of the gravel and loose dirt. I walked the easy trail in reverse ( it doesn't... More

We took the shorter of the two walks. A bit steep and loose gravel but quite doable for we 76 ers. Quite scenic. Early in the morning is probably the best time due to the heat.

I cannot express how amazing the Tent Rocks are. It was completely unlike anything that I've ever seen. It was a short easy hike - no steep hills or steps. There is a 3 mile drive (across private property so you can't get out of your car or walk it) on gravel but the views of the tent rocks from... More

You will have to research this sight well first to realize that you will have 1.1 - 1.3 mile hike to see the actual tent monument formations. We didn't know this upon arrival and after paying $5.00 to enter we consequently did the hike. Good thing I had brought my tennis shoes and water. You have to take your own... More

There are really two sites here--the tent rocks and the veterans' memorial. Unfortunately the latter isn't all that great, not worth the extra distance on the very rough roads. Fortunately, the tent rocks section is worth the visit. Not hoodoos, but a similar phenomenon has created these. There is a relatively easy trail around the valley and a much more... More

We read this was a must place to go to, and everyone was correct. I recommend going early in the day, bring, sun screen, hat, and plenty of water. Everyone in the family can enjoy the hike. Just make sure to drink plenty of water, and take a break when you need one. The trails were easy to follow, and... More

One of the most amazing places I have ever been. Tent Rocks National Monument gets my highest recommendation of places to visit in New Mexico. I am so thankful to the concierge at the La Fonda hotel for recommending this place. I'm not a hiker and I loved this place. So if you are thinking that you can't go because... More
