Short walk at the base of the rocks of Boca Negra Canyon. Petroglyphs are scattered throughout. Watch out for snakes!

Rocky lava trail that is moderately steep. Includes stairs and roped off areas at certain points. The history included on the plaques is interesting. Very nice way to explore the hill and petroglyphs.

Beautiful, easy trail. Partially paved at the beginning followed by well defined dirt trail. Went in the evening and watched the sun set over the city. Nice view of the Sandias as well. There are a lot of benches and places to sit and admire the views. We even noticed a couple of BBQ pits. We plan on coming back to grill and watch the sunset! It was $1 to park when we arrived around 7:30pm. You have to exit by 9pm as they close the gates.

Easy trail but the views and the petroglyphs are awesome.
