“Good for a short hike; different”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

We enjoyed stopping off at Tsankawi on our way to a longer day at Bandelier. It is a fascinating hike, and a beautiful view. Very accessible from Santa Fe. Recommended.

Interesting hike - imagine that people actually lived here! Beautiful views, too. Stay hydrated and watch for rattle snakes.

“Smile! Just Maybe the Taos before the was a Taos!”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

Very interesting ruins that clearly state that this was an art colony and nothing but an art colony! It's part of the Bandelier Nat'l Mon and has trail here that are totally different from any in the rest of the monument.
Self-guided, but you do need to be in reasonably good physical condition!

“Awesome Hike”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

The 1.5 mile loop at Tsankawi is definitely worth braving the heat to see. With Cavates (traditional cliff dwellings) you can enter and explore, plus ladders and wildlife this trail is fun beautiful and exciting. Bring water and a camera.
