Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument: Slot Canyon Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The Slot Canyon Trail in Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument o?ers hikers a great introduction to slot canyon hiking. The slot only lasts 0.4 mile but gives “?rsttimers” a feel for the tight space they will encounter should they decide to tackle a longer slot canyon hike one day. The 2.8-mile hike includes a strenuous climb to a beautiful view of the Jemez Mountains and the Dome Wilderness.

Environmental protection concerns and the fact that the park houses a National Recreation Trail were just two reasons why park managers pushed to have the land designated as a national monument. Partnerships and the efforts of the Pueblo de Cochiti, University of New Mexico, Sandoval County, and the BLM have provided the area with facility maintenance, educational opportunities, research development, and much more. It is estimated that people began to inhabit this area nearly 4,000 years ago."
