Petroglyph, Sandia & Day Tours

by TravillionRex Online Now Jan 26, 2008 at 8:29 AM

Thinking of seeing the Petroglyph Monument and was wondering if there's public transport that stops near the entrance and can I just waltz in? Also, is Sandia Peak easy to just walk from the Tram and putz around? Finally, does anyone know of any day tours from Albuquerque to Acoma or El Morro (can't really find any)?

    The ABQ RIDE map shows a commuter bus that goes by the Petroglyph visitors center, but the times might not be right. You can call them at 505-243-7433. Be aware though that many, if not most, of the petroglyphs are not close to the visitors center. Sandia Peak is a pretty easy walk from the Tram along the Crest Trail, but the views are just as good from the restaurant. I don't know of any day tours to Acoma Sky City or El Morro. El Morro is off the beaten path and don't expect any tours to go there. However, you might call the Sky City Hotel/Casino (1-888-SKY-CITY) and see if they run a shuttle to the Sky City visitors center from the hotel, which is ~12 miles away.
