Things To Do
Current park hours (including Visitor Center): 8:30 to 4:00 p.m. For guided tour and daily activity specifics, please click here or call the Visitor Center (505-757-7241) for tour and general information.
On weekends, we offer van tours to the Arrowhead Ruin (Fridays at 1:30), Civil War sites (Saturdays at 1:30) and the Forked Lightning Ranch (Sundays at 1:30). There is an additional $2.00 fee for the van tours, and a reservation is strongly recommended as seating is limited.
There's also a 2.3 mile Civil War Battlefield Trail; sign in at the Visitor Center and rangers will provide you with a gate code for access to the trail, and you can also purchase a self-guided interpretive trail map for $2.00.
The Visitor Center features museum exhibits with text in English and Spanish, a bookstore with gift shop, and a 12-minute introductory film available in either English or Spanish.
There's a picnic area near the mission ruins, and also one at the Visitor Center.
The summer tour schedule, which runs from Memorial Day through Labor Day, features a ranger-guided ruins tour Monday-Friday at 10 am. There are no reservations required.
