Original Hike: Bandelier Cliff Dwellings – Tsankawi Trail

What Has Changed: Special tour arranged.

Highlights: Interesting notch, hoodoos, fields of petrified wood, sandstone formations, huge petrified tree sections, “dinoback” rock formation.

Cautions: The roads, after you pass through the locked gate, are all dirt and impassable when wet.
Most of this hike involves walking in sand so it can be tiring; therefore the hike class is now rated C.
