We had originally decided to go to Puye but noting a festival over the Memorial Day holiday we switched gears and went to this park. We spent about 90 minutes walking through this lovely park learning about the Pueblo of this particular area. The park offers a written guided map and we found the history of the area fascinating.

We did have to walk about 1 1/2 miles to view this wonderfully kept area, it was nice to have benches in different spots to rest when needed. It was fascinating to see how they lived. Makes us appreciate how easy we now have it. The staff was very informational and friendly. They enjoyed my husbands having fun with them.... More

Great way to spend a few hours. The trail is a little over a mile and easy walking. No food or drinks available. Grab some food and have a picnic on the grounds.

My brother has a bad heart and was able to do the walk with no problem. When you check in at the Visitors Center make sure you receive a guided flyer that tells you all about each stopping point. That was so interesting and helpful. The walkway is paved and easy to do. Also it wasn't crowded so we just... More

We enjoyed our visit and are glad we went although the ruins were not as extensive as we expected the museum was very good and the explanations of the ruins were also very good. Recommend stopping if you are in the area.

This easy with a lot of history. Make sure to do the museum first to understand the history and the importance of the site. The staff was very friendly and had great suggestions.

The 1.25-mile walk on a nice, paved path takes you into the past of the Pecos Pueblo with its many kivas and the haunting remains of the beautiful Spanish mission. Only a fraction of it remains, but it's extraordinary.

The visitor center is accessible but the trails to and throughout the park are very steep. My power chair did not make it very far. This park is in the beautiful foothills of the Sangre De Christo mountains in New Mexico. The park is very close to the interstate. The visitor center does an excellent job of telling about the...

Knew when we stopped that this Pueblo had been important through Indian, Spanish, and American history. What we didn't know or expect that Greer Garson (actress) had given money to build the very nice visitor's center which has hand carved beams and Adobe architecture. The well done displays are in timeline fashion with actual pottery exhibited that was dug on... More

We stopped off on the way through on Route 66 and we enjoyed the stroll round the trail. They said it would take around 45 mins and actually it is only about 30 mins. We liked the signs that you should look out for and avoid any rattlesnakes.
