Do this trail prior to the other as this trail is simple with little to endurance required. Easy trail with a small cave view. If you have to skip one, skip this one and do the canyon trail instead.

I L O V E D my visit here. The beauty, the splendor and magnitude of the mystery is great. Places like this certainly make us want to praise our heavenly father and Creator, Jehovah. Just AWESOME!!

A short trail that is a very nice walk. Nice scenery. This is an easy walk for all ages and worth doing.

The Cave Loop Trail is the easier of the two hikes at Kasha-Katuwe Tree Rocks National Monument. The change in elevation is minimal but you still get to see some of the Tent Rocks. The views are definitely not as spectacular as those on the Canyon Trail.

Very nice hike with only slight elevation with specular views of the Tent rock formations. This is a must see national if your anywhere in the area.

Canyon Trail is a nice way to wind down after the EXCELLENT Canyon Trail, but didn't think it was much more than that.

Our son wanted to take this part of the trail because the word "cave" gave the impression it was something he could go in.. We were wrong. While it's not a long trail, the "cave" is the equivalent of a hole in the side of a rock.

Nice easy loop hike with very little elevation gain. Great hike for younger children. Interesting rock formations. Lots of little lizards on the trail.

This can be done before the longer canyon trail. It's certainly nothing groundbreaking but does get you close to a small cave and some of the famous tent rocks. It's pretty easy to hike to and didn't take very long at all.
