Explore the architectural remains of the Pueblo people from 850 CE to 1250 CE preserved at Chaco Culture National Historical Park. Inscribed on the World Heritage List, the park is significant for its ceremonial structures and impressively advanced engineering. Marvel at the quarried sandstone blocks and hauled timber constructions, a testament to the Pueblos' sophisticated understanding. Tourists can opt to tour by foot or by bike and are welcome to partake in campfires and stargazing. The road to the park is quite rough, so expect the trip to require skilled driving. Once there, you'll find plenty of trails to hike and petroglyphs to appreciate. Come prepared with comfortable shoes for the long walks and be sure to pack food and water.

We are so glad we made the journey to visit this site. Our visit to Chaco Canyon was made enjoyable by having an experienced professional guide take us through this site. Tori Myers from the Salmon... more »
Yes, the road is that bad....but once you get there, you'll see an amazing sites. We did not do ALL of the hikes because we were sort of kiva-ed out by this point after our trek through New Mexico... more »
Chaco Canyon is an amazing place to visit. Hard to believe that people built stone houses with such precision. It gets pretty warm so it may be best to go in September or October. The visitor center is great. Helpful people and a really good historical center that explains much of the history.
If you have a couple hours I really recommend going here. It's a little crazy to get to -- the last sixteen miles are gravel/dirt and it was really bumpy -- but it's worth it, in my opinion. Our kids loved that they could walk through one of the huge complexes, and we were able to talk to them a lot about the ancestral Pueblo people. It's definitely not a full day activity unless you don't have little kids are are able to do the longer hikes, but if you're in the area and/or have time to stop, do it!
