The colors in the rocks are beautiful. It is a short easy walk with lots of tables to have a nice picnic.

We were lucky that a gentleman was there with his Native American flute and played while we listened. The acoustics are magnificient and this stop was one of the highlights of our trip. And it wasn't on our itinerary. Just a serendipitous find.

The friends we were traveling with had been to this amazing site in the past, and were enthusiastic about showing it to us. A short and easy hike up brought us to areas where you could whistle, call out, sing, or make other sounds and...More

We stopped on our way to Abiquiu and was very pleased with the experience. Paved sidewalk all the way to the amphitheater and spectacular views of the rock cliffs along the way. This grandmother had a great time hearing her echo 😊

We were driving from Santa Fe to Pagosa Springs and stopped along the way for a stretch and restroom break. It was a lovely hidden gem! The restrooms were clean, the paved pathway was easy for even grandma to stroll along and the kids loved...More

Soooo worth the stop! Beautiful scenery. The amphitheater is breathtaking. And if you look up you'll find a rock formation in the shape of a bird that is too cool for words!

While there, there was no open air concert or the like so I rate this as a rock formation competing for attention amongst the thousands of others in northern NM. And as such I thing average is more than fair. As with most natural wonders...More

We were driving from Santa Fe to Durango and stumbled on his place. Very short walk up and back. Absolutely amazing how this formed. Worth the $2.00 fee!

This rock formation is pretty impressive and what it is even more amazing are the echos it makes. We certainly had fun making various noises and testing all our voices out. The beauty of the area is breathtaking. A must see when in the area!

Mid-October Santa Fe hiking with 7-month-old baby (4 Replies)
Hello everyone, I would like to get some trail recommendation for a 3-hourish hike. We are coming in mid-October. We would like some thing a bit more challenging (but still do-able with a 7-month-old baby in backpack carrier) with beautiful scenery (although I know everywhere in Santa Fe looks amazing but still would like to know where should be the most special to see in this season). I read a lot in this forum and came up with 3 ideas: Hyde Memorial State Park; Pecos wilderness...More

Greeting JuneBride! You're correct, Bandelier (and Tent Rocks) are currently closed. Hopefully re-opening soon but perhaps not in time for your planning. We have light snow right now on the peaks in Santa Fe, so Raven's Ridge/Deception Pk would offer great views, a challenging outing (2000 foot climb) but might be colder than you'd want with baby. Hyde Park won't get you much in the way of views; even the Circle Trail is tree-ed in. Rim Vista is a good choice, but also consider the...More
