Tent Rocks Canyon trail is 3 miles out and back hiking trail through a slot canyon with hoodos and striated rock formations. It is a religious site of the Cochiti Pueblo. The Slot has beautiful examples of rock strata, hoodos, the effects of wind and water. It's a nice climb-about 750 ft climb in about 3 miles. Going though tunnels and up ledges. There are railroad ties to make steps to get to the top where you can see for miles. The loop for handicapped small children is nice, with soaring raptures and cliffs. There's almost something for everybody, except rock climbers and rock scramblers. Stay on the trail as it is a sacred site.

-slot canyon trail is longer and very pretty, leads high up with a great view with tent shaped rocks and white slot canyons along the way
-second trail is super easy and to the top, more of a panorama view but nothing along the way

Absolutely beautiful. The only thing that could be better is if there were more trails.
