This tour departs in Albuquerque and is an hour drive to Tent Rocks. We will pass Santo Domingo Pueblo and Cochiti Lake Dam. The hike starts in the foothills of the Jemez Mountains, we will hike through a winding slot canyon and past towering "tent rocks". The only way I found to describe the experience is we left New Mexico and landed on another planet. This is a New Mexico Local must see destination.
Tent Rocks tour will depart in Albuquerque, it is about an hour drive. The hike is approximately 3. 5 miles round trip and is moderate hiking. Parts of the trail in the winter months might a little bit treacherous, but can be hiked. This hike tops out overlooking the Rio Grande Valley and the Sandia Mountains off in the distance, very beautiful view.

Great guide! David was knowledgeable and shared information, history and his personal experiences hiking Tent Rocks. I can't wait to use ToursByLocals again and hope other guides can measure up.
