This trail is fairly short and easy. It is more exposed, so wear sun protection. There is an interesting cave along the trail. Geology students should find it fascinating as the... read more

Allow about 2.5-3 hours to do the trail without a rush. We went in winter and did not regret. Only met a couple of families and it felt the trail was ours.

This was a pretty trail on its own, but I would have been disappointed if we had driven all the way from California and only saw this trail. The Canyon trail is much more difficult, but the views are incredible. If you do the Canyon trail, the first part is also part of the loop trail. When you are coming... More

This hike is easy and doesn't offer much. When tacked on to the longer hike, it's only slight longer than not taking it at all.

This trail is fairly short and easy. It is more exposed, so wear sun protection. There is an interesting cave along the trail. Geology students should find it fascinating as the rocks are intriguing with its layers and crystals.

A nice trail, nice cave. The second half of the trail (after cave) was more challenging. If u r in for An easy walk , just head the same way back. The canyon trail is what made this trip in our view.

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!!
