The Rinconada Canyon trail is located in Petroglyph National Monument near Albuquerque, New Mexico. There are said to be around 1,200 petroglyphs in Rinconada Canyon that were made by the Ancestral Puebloan people 400 to 600 years ago. The Rinconada Canyon trail provides a closeup view of some of them as it loops around the base of the escarpment.
