The Falls Trail is another trail that is very popular (click here for more information). It takes you to a beautiful waterfall. Before the flash floods of 2011 the trail continued to the Lower Falls and ultimately to the Rio Grande. Flooding destroyed the trail leaving no access to the Rio Grande from Frijoles Canyon. There are no archeological sites on this trail.
Bandelier also offers opportunities for much longer hikes (click here for more information). Permits are available for overnight stays in much of Bandelier's backcountry (click here for more information).
Hiking from Ponderosa Group Campground to the park visitor center can be a marvelous hike with a bit of advanced planning. For details, click here.
