If you have young kids and you want to help stimulate their interest in archaelogy you can't go wrong with Boca Negra Canyon. This series of trails, tucked into an otherwise anonymous neighborhood in Albuquerque offers lots of visual gems and good rock scrabbling for kids ages 7 - 14 or so. You and the kids can get right up to many petroglyphs and make up stories about them or debate what they depict. Is that an alien or a man wearing an antler's head as a mask? You decide. Not great in the summer as it will be sweltering and there are no trees on this sandy trail.

Fun and easy hike on a cooler day. lots of petroglyphs to see too

Nice little hike. The three trails in this little park are great for about an our trip. the first trail rises about 700 ft and can be a bit nerving if it is windy (and it was).
