Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument, Cochiti Pueblo

4.9
#4 of 154 in Parks in New Mexico
Geologic Formation Nature / Park
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. Put Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument and other Cochiti Pueblo attractions into our Cochiti Pueblo holiday planner, and watch your holiday take shape.
