  • This little gem is tucked away in a beautiful valley where few people stop to see. If you are interested in our Native American history then this is well worth the visit. Great visitor Information center and be sure to watch the historical video before doing the one mile walk around the Pueblos.
  • It was a very informative and learning the history was a great experience. My wife and I walked up and down the trails around the different plaques and different ruins oh, and we had a great time. I recommend it to everyone oh, and please spend money that gift shop because I know that helps keep the upgrades and flush toilets working.
