Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument, Cochiti Pueblo
(4.8/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Saw a piece on this place a year ago on CBS Sunday Morning and put it on our bucket list. Decided to go off-season, and was glad we did. Can't imagine it in the summer - with hoards of visitors. Prett...  more »
  • Drove here from Albuquerque on our way to Sante Fe. Really glad we did. The first portion of the hike is paved, then you can go left on loose gravel 1.2 back to parking lot or go right up hill through...  more »
  • This is a great spot about an hour from Albuquerque. It's a little out of the way, but not a bad drive. I did the slot canyon trail first, which was amazing. A few sketchy parts on the steep section, ...  more »

  • The slot canyon trail was a great hike. It had beautiful rock formations all along the way. It was interesting going through some very narrow areas in the slot canyon. The climb to the top at the end made the hike a nice challenge and the views were great when you got higher!
  • Absolutely gorgeous - a real treasure and a short trip from Albuquerque. Simply beautiful. Well kept facility...bring good shoes!
  • I wasn't as excited to go here as I was for our other stops, but ironically I enjoyed it so much and it was my favorite place of our road trip!! The canyon trail was the best hike trail I've ever done! The whole way was just so memorable and beautiful. Personally my favorite view was before getting to the top! but once you reach the top it's just so stunning and beautiful. Make sure you have cash or a check book, they don't take credit cards! It's just $5 per car.
  • This place is awesome. It is a moderate hike with some tricky parts but well worth the view from the top. I highly recommend you stop for a hike if in the area, just remember that pets are not allowed.
  • Best day hike within driving distance of Albuquerque. Must hike to top for the full view
