We saw the signs to the Park as we headed south to Albuquerque from Colorado. It looked interesting but we were in a rush. On the way back we decided to stop and we were glad we did. I wish we would have had more time to take in the museum. We were only able to do a quick visit... More

This park gave a great view into past of what the incoming civilization did to the existing one in the area. Landscape around the park is beautiful, filled with rolling hills. The ruin is a great monument of the occurrence and the shape is . This is a good facility to take the young ones to so that they can... More

A very haunting place. It always makes me think of all that has gone on in this country when I visit this park. It is quite beautiful, the park rangers are very well informed and it is never crowded. Well worth a visit.

My family and I visited Pecos National Historic Park in early October 2014. The park is off the highway but well marked. The main portion of the park features a visitor's center which contained an informative video, and a very neat timeline. Once done here, the trail to see the ruins begins just out the back door. The trail is... More

We went to the park in the afternoon figuring we would start that afternoon and finish the next day. It had some really cool ruins, but not a lot else. It was peaceful and quiet but they advertise for a civil war trail. When I asked, even the park ranger didn't sound enthused.

Wonderful visit to the Forked Lightning Ranch - an Open House in celebration of the 110th Birthday of Greer Garson Fogelson. It was a special day - with mariachi musicians playing and many of the rooms open to visitors. The park Rangers were there to talk about the Fogelsons - who donated thousands of acres of their property which became... More

Southeast of Santa Fe and a few miles off I-25. At the Visitor Center, I got my National Park passport stamps and the official map and guide brochure. The fee also covers Fort Union! Then out the back door on the paved one-mile trail that leads around the area by pueblo building and kiva ruins, finally ending up at the... More

A treasure in this area, great visitor center, informative staff, amazing history and a beautiful hike around the ruins with information to truly enjoy and appreciate the significance of this area. Views for miles. A gem of New Mexico and the US.
