  • I took a 1.25 mile hike complete with a laminated self guided walk, reading about the history and the ruins. This place saw a lot of action in the past, and was worth the 30-40 min drive from Santa Fe...  more »

  • Sept 19, 2016 entry was free. Liked the rebuilt underground "Kivas". Interesting history in this place. Sadly Spanish Conquistadors came to this area.
  • Beautiful holy ground. In awe of walking where so many natives to this great land walked! Well worth the time and $7!
  • If you love history, this is a must see! The ruins are beautiful!
