Rock face at Bandelier National Park. People climbing up a ladder to one of the Native American cave dewellings

Bandelier National Monument, New Mexico

We took a road trip to Bandelier National Monument in New Mexico. In the Frijoles Canyon, there are a number of ancestral pueblo Native American homes, kivas (ceremonial structures), rock paintings, and petroglyphs. Some of the dwellings were rock structures built on the canyon floor; others were dwellings in caves which were formed by voids in the volcanic tuff of the canyon wall and carved out further by humans.

There is a 1.2-mile (1.9 km), predominantly paved, “Main Loop Trail” from the visitor center allows you to access to many of these features. Hikers may enter many of the structures via ladder. Bandelier National Monument is a 33,677-arce park near Los Alamos in New Mexico. Most of the pueblo structures date to two eras, dating between 1150 and 1600 AD.

If visiting in the summer months. We suggest you visit in the morning. Before the crowds and heat take over. Parking is very limited. We were there on Labor Day weekend. And it was 101 degrees Fahrenheit (38.3 C). We ran out of water on the trail. Also dogs are not allowed on the trails. So pets have to stay in the car. It is way too hot to keep any pet in the car.
