This place is really cool. They have tried to preserve it the best they can. It's really cool to see almost all three sites of this fort. They have the star shaped earthen fort the one closer to the mountains that you can see but cannot get to I'm almost certain it's on private property and then the ruins you... 更多
We certainly enjoyed visiting here, it’s also a good stop for the family. It’s located about a half hour north of Interstate 25. The ruins of the fort are extensive and you can walk the trails among the old adobe walls. It also has a visitor center with restrooms and a small museum, admission was free. The rangers were very... 更多
I learned a lot of history about how the army was back in the 1800's. There is not much left of the buildings. The film in the visitor center was really good.
What a great visit. Admission was free but I would've paid for sure. A lot of history, great staff. They have a section of the trail blocked off were you can get our of your car and look and see the actual wagon wheel ruts on the trail. It gave me gooses bumps. Then you drive a little further to... 更多
We stopped by mainly to get a break during our drive home. Little did we know how interesting this place would be. This old fort, now in ruins, was huge and supplied all of the late 19th century army forts in the southwest. Materials were shipped in via the Santa Fe Trail and distributed to the remote army fort outposts.... 更多
We stopped here during our trip along the SFT. Unfortunately, it was almost closing time, so our visit was brief. I found the ruins fascinating and rather beautiful; a great opportunity for some good photos. The trail ruts are easily visible and are located outside the gate, so can be viewed after closing.
Time and man has not treated this old fort kindly. There is rhetoric of maintaining the site but it could be so much interesting to the youth if it were partially restored. Ask the folks at the front desk if you can meet George. He is interesting and full of moves. Try to go during the morning or evening cool... 更多
This fort was one of the largest in the West during its peak. It supplied all the other forts in the region and played a part in the Civil War. Definitely, in a remote location now but well worth the time to stop. You can walk at your own pace and it is well signed. The rangers are great with... 更多
As National Park enthusiasts, we try to stop at all national park sites along our trips. Ft. Union was a little disappointing. The Visitor's Center was interesting and the rangers were helpful in understanding the fort site and the nearby Santa Fe trail. The fort itself is mostly ruins of the buildings from over 100 years ago and required a... 更多
