Pueblo Canyon/Tent Rocks Trails
Length: 5.0 miles total
Elevation Gain: 500 feet
Parking: NM Department of Transportation Yard on NM 502
Used by: Hikers, joggers, mountain bikes
Use: Moderate
Connecting Trails: Ranch School, East Fork, and Bayo Canyon trails

Narrative: The utility road in the bottom of Pueblo Canyon is a year-round trail corridor for all types of trail users. The east end is off the Bayo Canyon Road, which is closed to unauthorized motor vehicles. Travel west from the parking area off NM 502 at the White Rock interchange to reach the Pueblo Canyon Trail in about 1.5 miles. The west end of the trail is at the junction of the Ranch School and East Fork trails near the confluence of Pueblo and Acid canyons. The Tent Rocks Trail provides a way to get off the utility road and onto a trail. The trail parallels the road but is located on a bench above the canyon bottom. There are plans to connect the Tent Rocks Trail with the Pueblo Canyon Rim Trail to provide opportunities for loop trips in Pueblo Canyon.
