Pecos National Historical Park in Pecos, NM celebrates the 1200 year history of Pecos Indians inhabiting this enormous and strategically situated Pueblo. The strategic location below the Glorieta Pass and, on a height of land providing views to warn of approaching attack was ideal for habitation. Park staff were friendly, helpful and approachable. Lengthy trail through this large well-preserved site.

We visited Pecos by chance and were recommended to go to the old pueblo ruins. Beautiful and informative self-guided trail, much of it wheelchair accessible. Two recreated kivas that you can go down into and get a feel for. All around are amazing mountains, and inside super helpful staff with museum, shop and films. This is a real gem, we... More

Visited here while touring NM. This place is one of the reasons why the Department of the Interior should keep, if not get, more funding. On arrival we were greeted by very friendly rangers who explained about the Park and directed us to a movie about the place. They couldn't have been nicer. Interestingly, the British actress, Greer Garson (1940's... More

Pecos is a great place to see the pueblo/missionary dichotomy. There has been some archeological work done here. You have the ruins of one of the largest pueblos in the area next to the ruins of a large mission church complex. The site does a fine job of explaining the societal dynamics of the site. And, of course, on a... More

There's not enough room to write all about this wonderful park. The history, culture, quality of care, ruins and beauty are extraordinary. It should be on anyones list visiting nearby Santa Fe, it's maybe 30 min from town. The trail around the ruins is very detailed by the information sheet park personnel give you. The ruins are phenomenal with a... More

On our travels we try to get outdoors and enjoy the wide open spaces. We had been to Bandelier National Monument the previous day and although that was an absorbing and interesting day, it was spoiled a bit by crowds and undisciplined children. Pecos was quite the contrary. Off the beaten track, you have to be careful if you are... More
