Overview
Pecos National Historical Park is located 17 miles east-southeast of Santa Fe New Mexico. September and May are the best months to enjoy this activity.


This area is rich with significant history. Pecos (Cicuye) Pueblo was here and served as a major trade center. Later came the Spanish to establish a mission church. The Santa Fe Trail in 1821 brought new trade and importance to the area. An important Civil War engagement, the Battle of Glorieta Pass, occurred close by. Extensive archeological work was done at the pueblo site. Lots to see and do if you visit. There is no admission fee.
