The ABQ volcanoes are a nice hike that offers great views and a look at some (relatively) recent volcanoes, but there is little interpretive information posted for those w/o prior knowledge of the site.

Just a huge open space of sand with weeds. Nothing at all to see. The view of the city was pretty, that's about it. No facilities here. No living ANYTHING...just dead weeds. Was wishing for cacti or some natural vegetation to view.

Nice, not too difficult trails. Free! You get some fantastic views of ABQ. This is a wonderful way to spend a few hours. Not hard to get to from I-25 -- just get on Paseo del Norte and head West. You'll be able to see...More

It was a very easy hike with nice views of Albuquerque with the mountains behind it. Bring water as I didn't see any vending machines, and definitely no stores.

Bring plenty of water. The trails are well used and easy to follow. The desert is wide open here. The views are spectacular. Native Americans believe that it is disrespectful to climb to the top of the volcano cones, so trails to the apex of...More

Take I 40 west and get off at Atrisco Vista. Go 4.8 mi north to the parking area. A two mile loop or. 1/2 mi overlook offer vista of the Sandias, Rio Grande Valley, Jemez, etc. And it is still in Albuquerque!

Go early and bring water! The family and I hiked the volcanoes over a couple of hours. The views from the top are nice, providing some great photo opportunities

This is one of my favorite places to hike in the area. I have walked here at dawn and at sunset, mornings, midday and evenings. In the summer it's too hot to go in the middle of the day, but at all other times of...More

Its pretty cool to hike around what used to be active cinder cone volcanos. You will feel your inner geologist come out. There is a cave in the forth one and it is a nice respite from the desert sun (even when it's cold).

Volcano Park officially opens at 8:30 am through dusk--we arrived at 6:30 am in order to hike as the sun came up and encountered one individual running. Bring water with you and wear layers. There are some rest stops where you can sit. The volcanos,...More
