Only if you still have lots of energy /battery/memory card left after the Canyon trail

The loop is portraited as a "easier" hike than the canyon trail, but it really isn't much easier..when combined the physical and sight-seeing, this should not be your first choice... read more

This is one easy hike! With small elevation changes towards the end! You get an up close view of the tent rocks from the bottom! There is so much to see on this hike! The scenery is absolutely gorgeous! I would recommend doing this hike first if you come to Tent Rocks!!

The loop is portraited as a "easier" hike than the canyon trail, but it really isn't much easier..when combined the physical and sight-seeing, this should not be your first choice if you have only time for one hike or if this is your first hike here. All said, the view from the bottom of the escarpment is wonderful with very... More

This is the easy hike in the Cochiti National Monument. It has picnic tables and bathroom facilities. The hike makes for a nice day outdoors.

A nice add on to the canyon trail - this is a 1 mile-ish loop to a great cave with some awesome views. Will take a little climbing skills to get into the cave. Great trail, easy for families.

This is a roughly one mile loop from the parking lot at the trailhead. It is relatively flat, with little shade. While there are some nice views along the west limb of the loop, the slot canyon trail is the hike to do at the National Monument.

Don't let the sign fool you there is some climbing on this loop trail but not enough to keep a family with a stroller away! Enjoy the slot canyon whilst there!

Try and have enough time to go do this and the canyon trail. If you only have time for one, do the canyon, but if you have time, do this one as well. Easy short walk for all people, probably better for younger kids.

This trail is in Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument. It is an easy 1.2 mile hike that will give you good views of the amazing rock formations in this National Monument. However, do make for sure that you hike at least a little ways up the Slot Canyon Trail, which comes off of the Cave Loop Trail. That will get... More

After hiking to the top catch your breath as you head back to your car and take the cave route. Mostly flat and fairly short with a photogenic and interesting cave.
