The parking area is right beside the highway, so we had to stop to check it out. I am 60 years old, and I have asthma, and I'm not used to the higher elevation, but I found this hike to be perfectly do-able. I paced...More

While there are no longer structures or even traces of structures on this site you can find ancient pottery everywhere along with areas that just sort of feel like they may have been areas where people cooked, or carved, or even guarded the property. If...More

This little spot is really hard to find, so use your GPS! There is a small parking area, but no facilities of any kind. The hike is short, up a hill to a viewpoint to look at the ruins, and back down again. The path...More

This place is easy to miss, so be sure to equip your GPS! The hike is pretty short, and of moderate difficulty. It's an uphill trail to the top where you can view the ruins from above and learn more about the history of the...More

Stopped on side of road for quick hike. There is a chama half way up the trail - really you only need to go this high to see the site. But it is worthwhile to hike the rest of the way. A peaceful hike with...More

We were looking for a place for a walk near the Abiquiu Inn. Found this short hike. Beautiful views, a short walk, and interesting history. We ended up on a cow trail for a while instead of the actual trail, but it wasn't hard to...More

I was determined to get there, so had to park way down from the ruins and walk. There must be a lot of history there, and I enjoyed seeing what I could get to.

These ruins can be seen from above. There is an easy trail up to the top of a hill where you see the remains of an ancient pueblo. The ruins are very eroded, but the new placards from the Forest Service are excellent explanations
