In addition to the big attraction of cliff dwellings of Bandelier National Monument, the canyon provides hiking trails and picnic areas. It is a perfect place for a day's outing.

New Mexico's nickname as the Land of Enchantment" is earned by places such as Frijoles Canyon. Beautiful area whether driving through or hiking.

We took the Frey Trail down to the main loop, which gave us great, elevated views of Frijoles Canyon. It's a beautiful canyon with different level hiking trails available for all different types of fitness levels. Get out & enjoy!

The main cultural attractions of Bandelier National Monument, the visitor center and the ruins trail, are in Frijoles Canyon, and they are definitely worth seeing. Also, Frijoles Canyon was hit hard by flooding (of the Rito Frijoles) a few years ago, and the effects, downed...More

If you only have a short time at Bandelier NM, then this is the trail to take. It's about a mile long from the Visitor's Center to Long House and another mile or so to the amazing Alcove House. The trail continues another 5 miles...More

I would have drive through this area without even having an end destination It's hard to process the amount of beauty around you. We kept pulling over to the overlooks just to stop and get out and stare into the distance.
