Visitor Tips and News About Tent Rocks
Amazing rock formations from ancient volcanic ash... "moonscape" or "smurf land" are adequate descriptors. Great views at top, round trip easily done in 1.5 hrs (that's with lots of stops for photos). Cave loop at bottom is easier but not nearly as amazing. Don't go if you can't hike it.
$5 per car. And it's paved now, and has bathroom facilities and picnic areas with tables and some with shelter.[Patty Robey, 06/20/2012]
Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks NM - Great slot canyon and white cliff views. The hike through the canyon is easy to moderate and the canyon gets very narrow and you'll have to duck under some overhanging rocks. South of Santa Fe, off Rt. 25, follow Rt. 22 to the end (Cochiti Pueblo) then continue 5 miles on a dirt road to the parking area. Passable by normal passenger cars.[Tom Beattie, 11/20/2008]
