We have visited all but one of the four listed sites for Petroglyph Natl. Monument in western Albuquerque. The only site we have not visited is Volcanoes which is the most remotely located of the four. The site that combines being dog friendly (I believe...More

We hiked the Rinconada Trail which is about 2.5 miles. We saw a lot of petroglyphs, once we knew what we were looking for. We enjoyed the hike, the view, and looking for the petroglyphs. We recommend you stop at the Visitors Center first and...More

The visitor center is not at the same location as the petroglyph sites, however they provide information on which hikes you can use and the locations. They also provide a wonderful movie that is quite educational and well done.

The three petroglyph sites are on the far west side of ABQ. The sites themselves are isolated, but the entrances/parking are still in the city. Each are in separate areas that you need to drive to, as is the visitor center. Go to the visitor...More

The visitor center is not where the petroglyphs are. They are scattered in the park. We only went to the main site, and it has limited parking. It has a series of petroglyphs you can see by climbing small trails. The best area requires the...More

I visited the Petroglyph National Monument on May 20, 2017. I went early to avoid the afternoon sun and I think this was the best time (9:30 am). The Petroglyph National Monument has various hiking trails in Boca Negra Canyon, Riconada Canyon, Piedra Marcadas Canyon...More

On our visit, our first stop was the Piedras Marcadas trail - and it ended up being our favorite. It seems to be very popular with the locals, and we saw a lot of petroglyphs along the way.

The monument was Sand with rocks in the background. It was ok for those that like to excercise. It was something that I was glad that we checked out. Probably not something that I will go To again.

An interesting part of history. The park is quite big and there are several different locations. Lot's of petroglyphs. Trails are varying from easy and short to quite difficult. Boca Negara Canyon and Rinaconda Canyon are have easy trails, and some nice petroglyphs to see....More

Since we were in Albuquerque we decided to check this place out. It was well-preserved but only slightly interesting to us (we aren't super interested in historical sites since we get bored quickly with them.) We only did one of the trails -- and that...More

Sorry; I can't remember if I saw bike tracks. I didn't see any bikers. The trails are not really long, and if you want to shoot by these sometimes subtle petroglyphs without seeing them, that would be a good way. I would... More

Are any of the trails easy for older people? How long is the shortest distance to see the petroglyphs? Thank you, going in June.

I think i mentioned that even though the altitude is ~1 mile, and we came the night before from about 20' above sea level, it was not hard going. The trail we took was a mile+ loop, but petroglyphs show up well before that... More

Hi Barry, We also went on the Piedras Marcadas Canyon trail and also did all the short side trails of this trail. Everything is pretty well marked and you get to see the petroglyphs up close. If I remember well, what we... More
