TENT ROCKS NATIONAL MONUMENT
A very unique place, the Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument is a remarkable place to hike, offering an opportunity to observe, study, and experience the geologic processes that shape natural landscapes. The national monument, on the Pajarito Plateau in north-central New Mexico, includes a national recreation trail and ranges from 5,570 feet to 6,760 feet above sea level.
The complex landscape and spectacular geologic scenery of the national monument has been a focal point for visitors for centuries. The national monument includes 4,645 acres of public lands located 40 miles southwest of Santa Fe with the most direct access from Interstate 25.
DIRECTIONS: From Santa Fe, take the Cochiti Pueblo Exit 264 off I-25 onto NM 16. Turn right off NM 16 onto NM 22, and follow the signs to Cochiti Pueblo and the national monument. Take plenty of water for the hike.
