Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument, Cochiti Pueblo

#3 of 236 in Parks in New Mexico
Set at 1,700-2,060 m (5,570-6,760 ft) elevations, Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument features tall, cone-shaped rock formations, canyons, and hiking trails. The geological formations--the tent rocks or hoodoos--have been created by volcanic ash accumulation and sculpted by wind, water, freezing, and thawing, through millions of years of erosion. Take the 1.9 km (1.2 mi) trail, through canyons and overlooking the tent rocks, which can stretch as high as 27 m (90 ft). Another trail passes along the base of the rocks, on a 2 km (1.3 mi) loop; hike it to see them up close.

  • I highly recommend this amazing place. You cannot bring a dog here. Apparently since some of the trail is very narrow dogs going up and coming down can fight. This is why I was no longer allowed. I don't recommend leaving your dog in the car it's too hot. However, the hike is amazing! It's like going to another space and time.
  • Breathtaking views along wonderful footpaths. Highly recommend.
