Trail Info.

This three mile loop through a slot canyon with hoodos and striated rock formations is a religious site of the Cochiti Pueblo. The Slot has beautiful examples of rock strata, hoodos, the effects of wind and water. It’s a nice climb-about 750 ft climb in about 3 miles. Going though tunnels and up ledges. There are railroad ties to make steps to get to the top where you can see for miles. The loop for handicapped small children is nice, with soaring raptures and cliffs. There’s almost something for everybody, except rock climbers and rock scramblers. Stay on the trail as it is a sacred site.
