  • My husband and I have been to El Morro (aka Inscription Rock) many times as children and adults. For various reasons neither of us had hiked the whole 2 mile loop trail. We came close this weekend-and...  more »
  • Without the booklet you will miss out on so much of the story of El Morro. The booklet is in the Visitor's Center, next to the cash register. The 45 minutes it took to do the entire Inscription Trail ...  more »
  • Nice place to visit and check out the water hole that pioneers used. Hike to top to see the ruins is a must. Great visitors center - you can also get a caving permit here or El Malpais. Nice campgroun...  more »

  • El Morro National Monument is a wonderful place and an amazing walk through time. Seeing the thousands of years of people that have passed by this one place simply because of the presence of water in a dry land really brings to perspective the short time we have on this world. The trail is an easy walk and everything is wonderfully maintained. So many pictures to be taken!!!
  • Beautiful. We did the long loop (I think 2 miles?) With 6 adults, 4 children under 4, and a dog. It was a great trail. Spent about 2.5, but we did some additional exploring with the little ones. I would like to go again and definitely recommend to a friend!
  • This place is a Must visit. The hike to the top of the mountain is not that bad and only 2mi. Once you get to the top you'll be rewarded with MAGNIFICENT views all around. Bring water and comfy shoes and a good camera.
  • This place was awesome! The walking tour guide was very informative. You can borrow it from the Ranger at the desk and then return when you get back. The tour begins at the visitor center and is a loop trail. It's maybe a mile or so and it doesn't take that long to walk. The whole trail is paved and easily accessible. The trail is completely open and in the sun, but there are a few benches with some of them being in a shaded area. Sections of it have a bit of a steep incline/decline. It's not difficult, but I noticed several people behind me throughout the tour and most of them never passed me. I took my time reading the information on the guide too. So you might not finish the trail if you're older or have small children or if the New Mexican heat bothers you.
  • Kind of rushed through due to rapidly approaching thunder storm. Still enough to attract on the fly and would like to visit again in leasure. Right after rains their are many pools on the trail so bring good boots or get a bit wet.
