Petroglyph National Monument, Albuquerque Reviews
Our first visit was just a short time after they opened the place. The welcome center was a trailer and the locations were not well marked nor much more that dirt trails. We returned a few years later and the location is much improved. The welcome center is more in line with other NPS locations and the trails are better documented. We look forward to visited again. The kids love it.
Great place to bring your out of town friends and kids to teach them about the history here. Some easy nice trails to hike through. It's a few dollars for parking. Enjoy the trails!
Great rock climbing adventure. Well marked trails, more advanced areas if you want them, or keep it easy. More info markers would be good.
Amazing, inspiring, and thought-provoking! Highly recommended. No cost. Three separate areas, but you need a vehicle to access these from the main visitor center. Hiking with in each of these three locations is very reasonable and not overly strenuous, minimal incline or change in elevation. Great on a cloudy day from the standpoint of photography.
Nice day activity to do in Albuquerque. Get your passports stamped at the visitor's center. There aren't any trails that start at the visitor's center so after you go there be prepared to drive to the trail sites. It costs a little for parking. The trails are family friendly and take you right by the petroglyphs!
