Nature gives us such beauty. The Tent Rocks are just one of many examples. I can't wait to return home and attempt to capture this on canvas. I know I won't do them the justice they deserve, but I know I must try.

You will be mesmerized by the beauty of the tent rocks and the caverns, caves and canyons that make up this gorgeous park. Knowing that New Mexico was once underwater, and seeing the effects of millennia of geologic activity will leave you with such a sense of the sublime. You must go!

Highly recommend the hike thru Tent Rocks. Saw some pictures of the canyon walk in a photography shop in Sante Fe and then made the trip out. Can't believe that this place isn't promoted more!! It was stunning, just stunning. Went on a great day after a small snowfall and it was just beautiful. The hike is challenging, but not... More

Amazing scenery and an easy hike. Great for photographers. Conveniently located between Santa Fe and Albuquerque.

Out of the way (between Sante Fe and Albuquerque), but a worthy find. It's a fairly difficult hike... Each step unveiling new sights. The "tent" rocks are peaked rock formations with a round rock perched on top. Not just one- but many. The climb to the top starts out easy, but soon you climb between narrow crevices and up rocky...

Thanks to all the great reviews on Tripadvisor, we visited this place on our road trip from east coast to west coat. Little over an hour's drive from Sante Fe downtown, this is an amazing place to visit. Out of the two trails, we did the Canyon trail as it leads to the top of the tent rocks monument. The... More

I live in NYC so this place was freaking amazing to me. The hike is gorgeous. At first it doesn't seem like much but then when you enter the Slot Canyons it gets really narrow and beautiful. Certain times of the day the sunlight beams through just so, its so dramatic! When you exit the slot canyons you start heading... More

Spent most of the day hiking through the tent rocks. Beautiful place but not sure how anyone could do this during the summer!

This is a relatively new National Monument, established in 20061; thank you President Clinton! It is a ways off of the interstate, but a beautiful and easy drive on paved roads to get to the Monument. After you go through the entrance gate it is a 5 mile drive to the parking lot where the trail starts. You can hike... More

Slot canyons are spectacular but unlike Antelope Canyon, this one is within 90 minutes of Albuquerque and Santa Fe. Tent rocks are like hoodoos in Bryce but these are easier to get to as well. And it costs only $5 for a car. Another good thing is that you can do it all before lunch. One more good thing, there... More
