ALBUQUERQUE — The Bureau of Land Management and the Pueblo de Cochiti have announced a change in hours for the Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument in an effort to better manage the resources of the monument, protect its fragile formations, and ease staffing shortages.
Entry into the monument will be 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., with the monument closing to visitors at 5 p.m.
During the summer months, the monument experiences increased visitation. Please be aware that visitors may experience entrance delays starting at 9 a.m., due to lack of available parking. Wait times may range from 30 to 90 minutes. As parking is made available, new visitors will be allowed to enter.
