Chaco Canyon Overlook Trail is a 1.74 mile one way hike with 300 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 52 miles south-southeast of Farmington New Mexico. A high clearance vehicle is recommended to access the trailhead. April and October are the best months to enjoy this hike.

Overview: The trailhead is in the Gallo campground.
The light is best in the morning. If you stay in the campground, make this a before-breakfast hike.

You must stay on the trail. They are serious about this and we know of someone who received a ticket for leaving one of the other trails in the park.

Please leave all artifacts as you find them.

The trail is open sunrise to sunset.
