Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument, Cochiti Pueblo

4.9
#4 of 154 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.

    We visited Kasha Katuwe a few years ago. Because we were with my in-laws, who have mobility issues, we only did the short hike, but the next time we visit, we'll be sure to check out the slot canyon. ...  more »
