Take a hike to see various ancient rock carvings.

Head to the three different petroglyph trails and discover ancient carvings dating back over 500 years ago. All the trails are open year-round and can be found at either Boca Negra, Rinconada, or Piedras Marcadas Canyons. The petroglyph trail at Boca Negra is the shortest (one mile long) and is ideal for young families and inexperienced hikers. There are three different paths to take and they are partially paved but not ADA accessible. Restrooms, a water fountain, shaded seating area, and picnic tables are located throughout the Boca Negra area. This part of the monument is open from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm and requires a small parking fee per vehicle.

This national monument was officially established in 1990 and is a great place to discover ancient North American roots. It is estimated that about 90 percent of the petroglyphs found in this region were carved by the ancestors of the Pueblo Native Americans. Most of these petroglyphs were carved between 1300 and 1680. Bikes are allowed at Boca Negra on the paved multi-use trails only. Leashed pets are only allowed on the Piedras Marcadas trail. Consider visiting this site the next time you're in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
