Tom shared with us a detailed and fun presentation of the archeological and social history of this incredible site at the 11am 9/27 tour.. we also attended the sept 30 night sky star gazing hosted by the san juan star gazers organization that was stupendous. John, who lead the presentation of astronomers (8 or more), was knowledgeable and entertaining. thank... 更多
We got here too late for visiting the ruins, but perfectly timed for the night sky archaeoastronomy program. We missed the signup but were able to join. With several speakers giving background of the chimney rock as well as the stars and planets while it was still light, we felt well informed. Then we drove to the upper parking lot... 更多
Pleasantly surprised by the value of this visit. Very informative. Our guide was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The hike up to the monument was amazing. Tour was an hour longer than anticipated (which was not a problem for us). Very pleased we made a last minute decision to stop here.

We checked online and found that it is actually an ancient Puebloan village. We decided to take the guided tour which was is... 更多
We thought it was just looking at a rock formation. Surprised that it was a historical tour run by volunteers. Nice hike and the guide takes it easy and stops frequently. Easy to moderate hike. Learned a lot . Got the card and t-shirt "I made it to the top."
We took the guided tour with Ranger Rachel. She did a wonderful job of telling us about the Indian ruins and history of the area. The guided tour includes walking up to 7,600 foot peak. You can see for miles and miles!
You might as well take pictures from the road. The road leading up to this place is about a 5 mph road of ruts and holes and is gravel. Going faster will tear your car up. If this is a National Monument the United State ought to spend a few bucks on a paved road. Colorado's service road are not... 更多
But wear the appropriate shoes for walking on steep rocky ground. We had a private tour to the top of the Companion Rock where we could see remains of early civilizations. Across the way were osprey nests and rock formation which provide a spectacular vista for imagining historical events and peoples. The visit is free, but to ascend, you must... 更多
Chimney Rock National Monument was a wonderful surprise for us. We have traveled in the Pagosa Springs area on a number of occasions but this is the first time we've visited Chimney Rock. We had planned to take only the self-guided tour of the lower ruins but then decided to go on the longer guided tour to the mesa to... 更多
drove way off the highway for a rock we could see on the highway but we weren't sure what it was. finally got to the visitor's center but you has to shuttle up to the rock for a tour. we read a few informational posters about the rock and left.
