Definitely worth the drive out to the monument. Just beautiful and a wonder. You need to be fairly steady and in good shape as even the beginning path is stone. An inexpensive tourist spot.... just the entry into the park

The place is nice, a good hike, not easy, I would say moderate, hiking up hill at a semi-aggressive pace. Was very disappointed that the canyon was closed. The ranger should have told us. Seemed very concerned that we leave on time, uncomfortable. DONT GO...More

Great Hike! It seems like you're on an alien planet. Absolutely a must see! Wear good shoes and bring water with you. There are picnic tables near the parking area. We enjoyed our lunch in the shade after our hike and it was very pleasant.

This is my favorite hike. I love the slot canyons and the different beauty this hike has to offer. It is steep in some places and bring plenty of water and snacks. It is only a 1.5 mile hike one way but don’t let that...More

The Monument is beautiful, but the hiking can be a challenge. The Cave Loop Trail is 1.2 miles long, rated as easy. The more difficult Canyon Trail is a 1.5-mile, one-way trek into a narrow canyon with a steep (630-ft) climb to the mesa top...More

The National Monument has excellent lower trails that are an easy walk. The slot canyon trail is a little more of an effort but the view at the top is worth it. Make sure that you have water with you. There were people that were...More

It's a 30-40 minute drive North of ABQ off of I-25N. Compared to some National Parks that are within 5 hours of ABQ, this one isn't quite as epic but still worth the drive. There are several trails, one of which is considerable to walking...More

There is a paved path from the parking area. Part of the slot canyon trail is a fairly easy walk, but it gets more difficult with some climbing over rocks/boulders needed and some tight spots. Just go as far as you can, it's... More

The one cave is only visible from outside, on the cave loop trail. The upper mesa trail is through slot canyons and is very narrow in places, but not completely closed in. Should be no problem.
