This is a great place to spend an hour or so. There is a little over a mile stroll that you can take with great history along the way. It'd be great for kids because they have several Kiva's you can climb down into. It's very pet friendly and a great outdoor activity. I wouldn't think you'd need more than... More

It's free. Or at least the day we came. It's educational. Kivas were entertaining for the kids and the trail is marked with signs to read. It's exercise. Got a little hike in for the day. It's beautiful. Great views.

Wanting to learn more about the history of the Santa Fe area and to get in some walking, we headed out to the park. It was a cold and windy Saturday but still very enjoyable. The price is right since it is free. The self-guided walking tour is easy and informative.

Interesting hike through the history of the Peco's Peublo. Easy trail with a good history lesson from the guidebook that the rangers will loan you. Beautiful area and well worth seeing. We also went to the Glorieta hiking trail where you hike around a Civil War battlefield.

This park is about 35 minutes from Santa Fe, with great signage along the way. Admission is free, and there is a beautiful visitor center with a museum, gift shop, and theater with an introduction film. Staff was very friendly. They provide you with a laminated trail map that leads you along a paved trail with several markers. The setting... More

I almost ended up skipping this place, as the pictures I saw online did it no justice. However, as it was only a 20 mile detour from Santa Fe, so we decided to just visit. And we're glad we did. The site is A LOT larger in person than it is in the pictures. I kind of liked the Salinas... More

A very interesting National Park that I’d never really heard of. Was at one time a large community for Native Americans that was a hub for the region. There is an excellent film and a rather large museum that you can peruse before taking a trail around the site. It’s not a terribly taxing walk but you do have to... More

Walked into the visitors center and immediately was ushered into a 12-minute video. Then, we walked to loop. It provided a wonderful views of the Pecos Valley. And the ruins of the 1717 church and 1625 foundation of the village are certainly impressive. This is a must-see, if you love history.

There's not much of the old Pueblo stuctures remaining but there is a presence and peace. Beautiful surroundings. Climb down into a kiva and open your mind.
