Albuquerque Hot Air Balloon Ride at Sunrise

409 reviews
Get the best possible views of the Albuquerque area without the expense of a helicopter tour. By heading out at sunrise in a hot air balloon, you'll be able to watch and snap photos as the sun's first rays fall on the dramatic landscape of the Sandia Mountains. Dip low over the mighty Rio Grande while listening to commentary on the area's geology and environment from your pilot. Then land for breakfast and sparkling wine.

This place is pretty cool. There are some great views of the Rio Grande Valley and Albuquerque. This place is great because you can choose how long you want to spend by choosing trails with the petroglyphs near or far from the trailhead.

Right on the edge/in Albuquerque, several short trails available to see some petroglyphs without much effort. A good gem for a national park. Some spots on the trails can be steep. Please also stay on the trails and don't deface the rocks to preserve the area.

This is an interesting place to stop and see some ancient Native American drawings. The Visitor Center was closed, but the trails are an easy hike and self-explanatory—something for all hiking abilities. We hiked two different trails.

The trail was wide and well-marked, There were so many petroglyphs on the Rinconada Trail. there were trail markers along the way that identified some of the drawings and history about them. I was a bit unsure about making the 2.2 round trip hike--but it was more of a long walk that I enjoyed with my grandchildren and their parents. It was SOOOOO windy, though, and there is no shelter from the wind (or the sun), but it was fun listening to the children as they'd spot another drawing, and we'd all wonder what it meant.

This was amazing. Both short and long hikes so everyone can see a petroglyph no matter the shape. Literally some are 20 feet from parking. So worth it. Being your picnic and enjoy the view. Dont forget the junior ranger badges!
