Nice park

We spent about an hour here walking the 1.5 (approximately) mile trail and reading about the sites. Was a very nice piece of history.

We went on the guided tour of the area. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. We went on a very hot day and the guide made sure we were in shade before we stopped to talk about different areas.

Did the 90-minute Ranger-lead tour of this pueblo village that was on a major trade route. Barbara was our guide and was very informative. We learned so much history about the area and the way of life back then. It was so much more informative to do the tour rather than explore on our own. There is also a small... More

What an amazing site! So many things have happened here. The park has several branches that involve an ancient and extremely influential pueblo, a massive Catholic Church, a key battle over the civil war transmississipi west and a movie star's ranch. There is something for everyone to find in this unique, tree-covered part of New Mexico. Come and explore!

Though it's not too far from Albuquerque, first time there. Lots more to the park then we thought. It's historical significance is amazing. A new place to take company.

People working in park are very helpful and friendly. The short walk takes you by the Pueblo ruins. Informative brochure tells you everything you need to know. We did see a rattlesnake on the trail so be aware. We backed up and it moved away. I would be very cautious if I had children with me. Stay on path. It... More

This is a quick one mile walk to see a variety of features on land once occupied by the Pecos Indian tribes. You learn a lot about how they lived and what the structures provided for them. I highly recommend sun screen, a wide brimmed hat and water for the walk. It was June and very hot. They also remind... More

Time takes on new meaning here. I felt so in touch with an ancient and wonderful people. There is amazing beauty in both the landscape and the historic structures.

The park is about 20 minutes from Santa Fe. There are a couple of sites minutes down the road. In the main part of the park, there is a ruins trail. Here you will see remains of walls, an underground kiva and the mission. The park has a great view of the surrounding wilderness. A pleasant and worthwhile stop while... More

This is a treat of a place: much information and education to be had in a relatively small , manageable area which is beautifully designed and displayed. Excellent introductory short film, educational displays and friendly, helpful staff. A reflection of just how much the National Park system offers, even in the less known and visited parks. This is a good... More
