Take the time to stroll around the grounds to see the ruins of the mission and the convento, if you are able to. Check out the kiva ruins. Interesting and edifying.
My husband and I arrived at Pecos National Historical Park at 9 am before it got hot outside. It took us about an hour to tour the ruins. We were given a little notebook to read when we got to each numbered site along the trail. The trail was about one mile and was paved 90% of the way. We... 更多
We stopped here on our way to Santa Fe and found it to be a nice, worthwhile stop. We walked the loop through the ruins in a little under 2 hours, stopping along the way to learn about the history of the land. I'd recommend a stop here if you are driving along I-25 and need to stretch your legs.... 更多
Great way to spend a few hours. The trail is a little over a mile and easy walking. No food or drinks available. Grab some food and have a picnic on the grounds.
My brother has a bad heart and was able to do the walk with no problem. When you check in at the Visitors Center make sure you receive a guided flyer that tells you all about each stopping point. That was so interesting and helpful. The walkway is paved and easy to do. Also it wasn't crowded so we just... 更多
We enjoyed our visit and are glad we went although the ruins were not as extensive as we expected the museum was very good and the explanations of the ruins were also very good. Recommend stopping if you are in the area.
This easy with a lot of history. Make sure to do the museum first to understand the history and the importance of the site. The staff was very friendly and had great suggestions.
The 1.25-mile walk on a nice, paved path takes you into the past of the Pecos Pueblo with its many kivas and the haunting remains of the beautiful Spanish mission. Only a fraction of it remains, but it's extraordinary.
The visitor center is accessible but the trails to and throughout the park are very steep. My power chair did not make it very far. This park is in the beautiful foothills of the Sangre De Christo mountains in New Mexico. The park is very close to the interstate. The visitor center does an excellent job of telling about the... 更多
We stopped off on the way through on Route 66 and we enjoyed the stroll round the trail. They said it would take around 45 mins and actually it is only about 30 mins. We liked the signs that you should look out for and avoid any rattlesnakes.
Great Visitor Center, Beautiful Pueblo Ruins where you are able to climb down into a kiva! Great Civil war van tour of various sites with park staff. Worth spending a chunk of your day at!
This park was spectacular. I "stumbled" across it as I was staying in Pecos and drove by it; I drove in to see what it was all about. The walking trail is superb. I learned so much about the history of the people that have lived in this area for centuries. The ruins - particularly the Kivas - were in... 更多
Thousands of people lived here and only traces remain to be reflected on. There are several intersections to explore at Pecos. Pueblo and Spanish culture. The opening of the Santa Fe Trail between Missouri and New Mexico. The high point of the Confederate invasion in the west. Start at the visitor center to orient yourself with the history of the... 更多
Pecos is a small national park, but packed with information about a very interesting time and place in our country's history. I would recommend it to anyone interested in learning about New Mexican, or the old west history.
