Penasco Blanco Trail
Trailhead: Pueblo del Arroyo parking area
Elevation gain: 200 feet
The longest trail - relatively level - includes two spur trails (the Petroglyph Trail and the Supernova pictograph) where you can view numerous Chacoan and Navajo petroglyphs and historic inscriptions. Peñasco Blanco, an unexcavated great house, has a unique oval design and a spectacular natural setting. Hot summer sun and soft sand can make this a difficult hike.
