Ascent Trip Report

Tent Rocks National Mojnument High Point is an easy hike from the Canada Camada Overlook (Veterans Memorial Overlook). The road is gated beyond the over look ostensibly to protect the road. The forested area above the overlook has been aggressively thinned and is not very scenic.

I hiked up the road to the locked gate at the boundary of the Indian Reservation. There is a high point to the right of the road about 100 yda and another to the left of the road about .25 mile. Nothing spectacular about either spot. I followed the TR by John Mitchler http://cohp.org/natl_monuments/Kasha-Katuwe_Tent_Rocks_1.html from the CoHP.org website to access the area.
