Good hike! Poor restroom facilities. Take water. And take the LONG hike. You won't get to see much on the short one. But we still enjoyed it. If you take the drive to the scenic area, have vehicle the can go on a rough dirt road.

Tent Rocks is a one of New Mexico's landscape treasures. The scenery is very different with slot canyons and views of Interesting rock formations. It isn't a long hike, but you definitely need water and good hiking shoes. The panoramic views at the top of the trail are beautiful, but the best part is walking through the slot canyons in...

Spent memorial day hiking to the top of Tent Rocks in the morning. The hike has some easy and a few difficult ones. Bring lots of water because you need hydration as you go along the trail. Wear good hiking shoes or rubber shoes to take care of your feet. There are a few steep climb but really worth it... More

Wonderful, beautiful scenery. A very unexpected treat! We brought a five-year-old and a nine-year-old up the long trail to the top. It was difficult, but it would have been much easier if it had not been such a busy day. They are very narrow trails with some dangerous spots and passing large groups is difficult. I would also advise not... More

This park has Beautiful scenery and interesting hiking. We are 70+, and hiked to just past the slot without any problem. You will know what the slot is when you get there. Once you are through the slot the trail gets quiet steep and climbs to the top of the cliff area. So, we turned around a retraced our tracks... More

My favorite National Park is Arches near Moab, UT but this National Monument rivals it for scenery, uniqueness and overall fun in the climb to the top! We walked the slot canyon at 9:00 am on a 60 degree day and we were sweating. It can get very hot so go early and bring water and consider getting there at... More

The Native Americans really did know how to pick them. It has spended and unique beauty, but also has a pulse of its own. I have not been on a weekend and couple imagine its popularity due to its close proximity to ABQ, but if you are visiting on a weekday and want a nice walk or a mild hike... More

Wow this is an impressive site. Need to take the extra ride up to the Veterans point. Nature is showing off the power of sand stone wind and water.

The tent-shaped rock formations in this monument are truly unique! This is a beautiful area to explore. The hike is not difficult, and even by taking a very short hike one can experience the wonder of this area. Be sure to bring plenty of water, particularly if you are hiking in warm weather. And be sure to bring a camera!
