Bandelier National Monument encompasses over 33,000 acres of canyons, mesas, and archaeological sites that date back over 11,000 years. Some of the settlements have petroglpyhs and have homes carved into the cliffs. There are a number of outdoor activities here, including over 70 miles of trails.

Bandelier National Monument is not very dog friendly. Dogs are allowed in the visitor center parking lot, at one of the campgrounds, and in the Cottonwood Picnic Area (inside the no dogs signs). They're not allowed on any trails and most areas of the park.
