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.

Did this trail in the evening, about 1.8 miles. The trail is in a neighborhood area which felt odd. There was a sign at the trailhead with the trail guide, however, when we were there it felt like a choose your own adventure. People were climbing rocks, there were people off the trail, etc. At one point we were following footsteps on what we thought was the correct path, but turns out it wasn't. Overall, we saw lots of cool petroglyphs and had a great time. Did see lots of rabbits too!

Giant loop, with option to add in an additional loop. The trail doesn't provide shade - but the views are AMAZING. Worth it.

We did this trail around 10AM, it does get warm. There is no shade. The trail is a loop, with half the loop up against the rocks. The rocks are where the beautiful Petroglyphs are. We had our dog, and he saw lots of lizards. We did not see any snakes but were warned plenty about them.

Fun short hike

Great round trip for 3 miles. It's a nice easy hike and great for training.

I loved this trail! Finally a good time of year for it as there is no shade. Great view of Albuquerque. Wear good shoes because the terrain is a little rocky. Short and sweet, great hike!
