Sunday, Sept. 24, 9am: Las Placitas Association is hosting a Tent Rock hike. The trail is made up of two parts after the first 1/2 mile mark where you can do the 1.2 mile Cave Loop Trail (which is easy and returns you back to the parking lot at the trail head after viewing a cave from the pathway). The more difficult, but certainly worth the effort is the 1.5 mile hike up the Canyon Trail which is a slot canyon with unique geologic features found only here and in Turkey. You can at this point retrace your steps back to the parking lot or continue to climb some 630 feet to the mesa top to get some great views of the Jemez, Sangre de Cristo, Sandia mountains and the Rio Grande Valley. We will meet at the Merc parking lot at 8:55 on Sunday 24 Sep for a 9 o’clock departure. Wear good hiking shoes/boots, sunscreen and a hat. We will provide the water.
