  • What an amazing morning. We arrived at the entrance an hour before it opened. Once inside, the rangers offered us some coffee they had brought with them. The trails include an old watering hole. Names of passserbys' carved into the rock, and an ancient pueblo. The hike was relatively easy. About 15 minutes to the top. Awesome views!!
  • Beautiful carvings on the wall, great view from the top. Careful though, the walk up is pretty harsh. Lots of switch-backs. If you are not in good shape, get in better shape and go. Totally worth the climb to talk to the locals about the ruins that are there and see the area around you.
  • Fascinating place! The petroglyphs and all the inscriptions were amazing! To think about the people who made them and imagine who they must have been makes it even better. The guide at the visitor center when we stopped in was very friendly and knowledgeable. I would recommend it and would love to go again!
  • It's a pretty unknown Monument with few people and beautiful country side. The campground here was great. Very clean, well maintained and Free! That alone is worth a visit.
  • I went to photograph El Morro almost every day I was in the area. I only took the hike once. It is a bit of a strain if you are not used to the altitude and when the sun is beating down in July. Plan to take your time if you are not in great shape and bring plenty of water. But the view from the top is worth it as are the ruins if you love that sort of thing, which I do. The benefit of going in July is the incredible beauty of the monsoon clouds on the horizon, which you can see in all directions.
