This place is a natural and national treasure. Definitely come if you're in the area. Easy drive from Santa Fe. The slot canyon trail was simply breathtaking. Mildly strenuous if you wish to go to the end (but worth it) but the easy part of the trail goes through narrow canyons filled with oohs and ahhs! Very well maintained trails.... More

Recently, I spent the morning at the Tent Rocks National Monument, with my kids (9 and 12) and my father (72). I was really impressed by this place. The walk all the way to the top took about an hour each way (I do think that the top trail is not for anyone out of shape). The views were breathtaking.... More

On our yearly visits to our Son in Albuquerque this has been on our "To Do" list but we have never found the time, well we did this year. The drive from ABQ isn't that far and being that you will be close to Santa Fe you can throw that into the mix and have a great day out. Being... More

This was our third hike in ABQ and by far the most amazing! I would strongly encourage everyone visiting to go. You can hike anywhere for about a 1/2 mile to 3 plus. Definitely worth any amount of hiking you can do!

This park is just over an hour drive from Albuquerque and will not disappoint. There were two major trails available 1) the cave and 2) the slotted canyon trail. The slotted canyon is by far the better trail although a bit more challenging as it progresses. I definitely recommend tennis shoes at a minimum. There were lots of families with... More

I don't know how much i can add to the reviews already here. Tent Rocks was my introduction to New Mexican terrain and I fell in love with it! We went early in the morning right when it was open for business and that was a great way to see the sunrise and also to have the place to ourselves.... More

We've lived in Albuquerque for awhile now, and finally made it to Tent Rocks. So glad we did! Our kids are good hikers, but the slot canyon trail works great even for kids who get bored easily. The canyon walls are so cool to look at, with new formations to discover along the whole length of the trail. Tons of... More

What an amazing place. The views even from the car park are fabulous with the soaring cliffs and the amazing tent rocks. There are two hikes - the cave loop at a little over a mile, and the out and back hike to the top of the cliffs. The trail meanders through a slot canyon with some narrowish places, but... More

We hiked the slot canyon trail with our nine-year-old and 12-year-old. Our kids do not like to hike, but this is not a terribly difficult trail for kids. As an avid hiker, I will tell you this is one of the prettiest hikes I've taken that is also not too strenuous. The hill at the end can be a little... More
