New Mexico Day Hike


Recommended Posts

There is a chance that I will be near Santa Fe for a few days in October. I'm wondering if someone can recommend a scenic day hike or two. I wish I could actually get a real hiking trip in but I think a day hike is the best I'll be able to do. I'm willing to drive 2 to 2.5 hours.

Santa Fe is one of our favorite spots! Here are few of my favorite hikes just outside of Santa Fe:

Tsankawi Loop in Bandelier. The first time we hiked it we had some trouble finding the trailhead, although it's right off the main road. It's a short hike and has cave dwellings, petroglyphs, ladders, etc., and is just way cool:


Another is Tent Rocks - some amazing hoodoo formations and includes going through a short slot canyon.
