A series of short trails in Albuquerque's Boca Negra canyon.

Super short and a lot of stopping to look at the petroglyphs, but the rocky terrain is nice.

This trail is about viewing Petrogylphs, not so much about the hike experience. Great place to take visitors to ABQ.

The glyphs are interesting, even though there is also modern graffiti everywhere. Worth it if you don't have time to go on a longer hike elsewhere in the park. $2 admission fee.

Go for the glyphs not the hike. Take your cell phone and listen to the information on the history of the place. Very interesting.
