A Landscape of Symbols Petroglyph National Monument protects one of the largest petroglyph sites in North America, featuring designs and symbols carved onto volcanic rocks by Native Americans and Spanish settlers 400 to 700 years ago. These images are a valuable record of cultural expression and hold profound spiritual significance for contemporary Native Americans and for the descendants of the early Spanish settlers.

nice trail , easy

Easy and short hike. Maybe a little much for young children and elderly as there are some rocky and steeper areas of the trail. Had fun with my cattle dog and enjoyed the views.

We started around 3:30 and finished right at 5 when it closes. We brought two dogs and saw quite a few other people hiking the trail. Along the loop there are a lot of side trails you can take, and all the volcano trails are closed but we went up the first one and saw people at the top of all three. The view of Albuquerque and the Sandia mountains is incredible, everyone should do this hike at least once!

Hit up this trail with my husband and our 6-month-old in a baby carrier and it turned out to be one of the highlights of our weekend in Albuquerque. There are a surprising number of petroglyphs along this short route and the canyon felt otherworldly on the foggy morning that we were there. We were glad we hiked the trail clockwise so that we were rewarded with the most interesting features toward the end. We also avoided getting stuck behind a couple of groups this way, though there weren't too many people out to start with and most of those were trail runners.

great views, awesome first trail if your just getting into biking.

Easy trail with excellent views of the Rio Grande Valley.
