This is a great place for a nice hike while being surrounded by amazing scenery. There are two trails, the cave loop being less taxing.

The cave route is okay. Take the long route first, and if you aren't tired, finish on the shorter route. scored 3 because the long trip was so much better and the "cave" was inaccessible and looked like a pocket in the face of the rock.

Fun walk up hill to a once long ago occupied cave. Beautiful view of mountains beyond the tent rock canyon. Slight downhill walk and more tent rocks along the canyon wall. Easy walk.

I L O V E D my visit here. The beauty, the splendor and magnitude of the mystery is great. Places like this certainly make us want to praise our heavenly father and Creator, Jehovah. Just AWESOME!!

The Cave Loop Trail is the easier of the two hikes at Kasha-Katuwe Tree Rocks National Monument. The change in elevation is minimal but you still get to see some of the Tent Rocks. The views are definitely not as spectacular as those on the Canyon Trail.

Very nice hike with only slight elevation with specular views of the Tent rock formations. This is a must see national if your anywhere in the area.

Canyon Trail is a nice way to wind down after the EXCELLENT Canyon Trail, but didn't think it was much more than that.
