We did this after the slot canyon trail. It was a nice way to wind down after the strenuous hike to the top of the slot canyon. Half way through you see a man made cave (Anasazi era). Pretty cool.

The Cave Loop Trail is an easy hike and the views are nice. Make sure to do the Canyon Loop trail too. It is a more moderate hike and the views are great. Even if you don't do the Canyon Loop trail you should still wear comfortable shoes and take plenty of water. If possible you should try to do... More

Don't miss the trails if you made it out the park. It's a long drive from just about anywhere, so might as well.

Easy trails and plenty to see all around you. Quiet and calm surround the area and will refresh and re-energize your spirit. Kasha-Katuwe is a treasure. I can't wait to visit again!

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!
