Stopped here on the way from Albuquerque to Santa Fe. Scenery is amazing. Well worth the trip. Really enjoyed the views and the great rock formations.

Me and three friends left Albuquerque at 8:30 a.m. and it took about an hour to get there. We were not alone--already there were many cars in the parking lot. $5/car to get in. We had hats, water, snacks for after. I thought we were pretty prepared. It's a hike! Not so far, really, but a real climb in some... More

This is a unique area with very interesting rock formations. Absolutely worth the short trip from Santa Fe. You can get all of the info you need from the blm.gov website.

Stopped to see these natural formations and was quite pleased. The hike to the top is not for all, but it is worth it if you are in good shape. Out of shape people, should avoid this, especially when it is hot.

About 30 miles south of Santa Fe, this national monument features cone-shaped tent rock formations produced by volcanic eruptions at least 6 million years ago. These formations range from a few feet to 90 feet in height. Two trails lead visitors into the monument for a closer look at the tent rocks. We came here on an extremely hot August... More

Just about 30 minutes SW of Sante Fe is Tent Rocks Easy Hiking and beauitiful scenery. Tables with covers for those who want to sit and enjoy the view without the walking. Easy to do. Worth the visit. National Monument, so if you are a senior and have a pass, no charge. Good parking. Not alot of tourist on scene... More

OK so going in August at 11am is not a good idea but going is a GREAT idea. It is beautiful and fun. It is such a great hike. I cannot wait to go again when it is cool and I can enjoy it all the more.

This is a wonderful day hike close to Santa Fe and Albuquerque. My wife and I went on the spur of the moment sometime in July. The mistake we made is that we arrived around noon; it can be pretty hot in the sun at that time of day. When I go back I will time it for an early... More

The rock formations are amazing. We were there in July and started our hike at noon when it was quite hot. We made it to the top and back to the parking lot by 3:00 PM just as the thunderstorm came roaring through. Our 6 and 11-year olds needed some coaxing to get to the top but, in the end,... More

Bandelier and Taos are more well-known day trips from Santa Fe, but they have nothing on Tent Rocks. Tent Rocks offers unexpected diversity with its signature formations, narrow winding carved canyons, and expansive views. Because some trail portions are definitely single-file, go early in the day to avoid waiting for hikers traveling in the opposite direction from the peak. It's... More
