Hiking Trails

There are four backcountry hiking trails in Chaco Culture National Historical Park ranging from a relatively level 3 mile roundtrip hike to a trails over 7 miles long and climbing up to 450 feet. Whichever trail you choose to take it will provide you with a rare opportunity to experience the present-day solitude and sweeping vistas of the canyon and mesa landscape; allow you to see the impressive Chacoan great houses, roads, and features in an undeveloped setting; and help you understand the scope and extent of the Chaco world.
