Hiking Trails

There are four backcountry hiking trails in Chaco Culture National Historical Park: Wijiji Trail, South Mesa Trail, Pueblo Alto Trail, and Peñasco Blanco Trail. These trails range from three miles round trip (Wijiji) to eight miles round trip (Peñasco Blanco). Whichever trail you choose to take, it will provide you with a rare opportunity to experience the sweeping vistas of the mesa landscape and see the impressive Chacoan Great Houses and roads, as well as help you to understand the scope and extent of the Chacoan world.

A comprehensive trail guide booklet to all of these trails is available for $2.00 at the Visitor Center bookstore.
