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.

It is a must see, it was my favorite trail we have hiked. I absolutely loved everything about it, the rocks along the way and the view. I would do it all over again. If you come to Santa Fe definitely check it out.

Did the slot canyon loop first. Walking thru canyons were fun. Steep part, just before the top a little tough but once at top views were spectacular! On way out took the cave loop. I like this part because not many people on trail...very tranquil. Cave was cool to see, yet you really couldn't go in it. Amazing hike altogether. Took lots of pics. My Fitbit said walked total 3.7 miles 2 hours and 25 min. That's with a lot of stopping to take pics and wait for people on trail...and take in scenery at top.

Road tripping across the coutry im glad i made this detour. The trail was covered in snow and ice that made the steep climb very difficult but we made it to the top in just running shoes for we were unprepared for the hike.
