Our favorite hike of all time (so far).... this trail had it all, steep mountain hike with awesome views, long narrow slot canyon, boulder climbs and unusual rock formations...this trail is a must!

Great casual hike. Thousands of petroglyphs and a couple excavated huts to see. Only $5 for day parking. Lots of wildlife - lizards, snakes, and. even spotted a roadrunner!

Fun trail, loved the beautiful views.

Really great hike! Get there early to for fewer people. Would definitely hike again!

Amazing! The first cliff dwellings I've been to. We got a tour of the dwellings from a volunteer guide, then looped back along the creek.

Awesome hike! Great scenery! Get there early, as it gets quite crowded anytime after 11am, slot canyons are difficult to maneuver with other people on trail. Take a camera!
Wear good shoes, saw some guy doing this hike in flip flops, not good.

Took the fam and we all really enjoyed the hike.

We headed out on the trail early which allowed for ample photo ops while hiking through the canyon and up to the scenic overlook.

Descending was very crowded as there were so many people in the narrow canyon.

Definitely a must do hike as the views were spectacular.

Our favorite hike yet, this one had it all. Mountain climb, slot canyon and amazing rock formations. Would probably rate this one on the harder side of moderate though due to the steep boulder climbs at the end.

fun hike! requires some climbing over rocks and a mild steep hike in some areas but take your time and enjoy the scenery!

Nice walk. Unfortunately trail stops at upper falls. The rock striation is really impressive

Amazing landscape. Beautiful views. one of a kind experience!

Just be aware that the rangers will usher everyone off the mountain at 3:30 sharp and the park closes at 5, so plan accordingly.

Trail isn't clearly marked but the view of the petroglyphs is amazing!

Found this trail by accident and loved it! Someone told me you can go 1/2 mile into the cave.

Amazing spot to catch a view of what feels like the center of the world. A birders delight, we arrived around 11 yesterday and the crowd wasn’t bad at all. Easy enough for all skill levels, I would recommend to anyone!

Nice for a quick walkthrough.

The waterfall was pretty dried up but it is a beautiful hike! Short and easy!

wasn't clearly marked, were we in someone's back yard? the dogs scared us. did love that we saw long eared rabbits, road runners, coyote & indigenous birds.

Easy, quiet hike. Lots of previous animal activity in the area...watch where you step when you are near the river!

BEAUTIFUL hike. Very well maintained and marked. You get to see some old ruins of camps and a hotel that used to be up here. Very neat. This is a National Park so there is a $5 fee but it was well worth it. The hike up is a little harder, it’s a steady incline until you get to the springs so it’s all down hill coming back. Trail is a gravel path that is very wide and easy walking.

More of an access road than a hiking trail. A lot of indications of human activity as it serves as a storage area for the resort. The river is pretty but we drove 40 minutes from Taos to get here and wished we had chosen another hike.

What an amazing area. The short slot canyon leading to the bigger "tents" is gorgeous but there were so many people it was hard to get gray pictures. This is a must-do, but do it early in the morning to avoid the crowds.

absolutely stunning...I could have soaked up these views for days... traveled to New Mexico to see the Tent Rocks and they did not disappoint!

Beautiful trail, pictures are fantastic from any angle. Can be a little trying if you’re a newbie like me but totally worth it.

Nice trail for those of us still getting accustomed to the altitude but wanted to get some distance under our belts. Beautiful views at the top overlooks in all directions. We were the only ones on the trail.

Beautiful views! The Spring wasn’t so impressive, but the landscape was. Plus, several trails lead into one another, making the adventure endless if you desire. Great experience!

Favorite trail. Gorgeous views and incredible rock formations. The winding canyons in the beginning are beautiful. A little tricky towards the top especially if you are shaky with heights but really worth going to the very top. You can see for miles. Go early to avoid crowds!

Beautiful views, several caves, and lots of ancient pottery shards to see. Easier to follow loop if you go to the left when you see the loop sign. Get a guide book from main Bandelier sight if you go there first. Trail has numbered signs that follow along with book. I wouldn’t have seen all the pottery without it! Pretty quiet, only saw a few people. A little tricky in some spots to see where the trail actually is but worth it!
