Inside the visitor center, you will find a museum with exhibits on ancestral Pueblo daily life, the Chacoan landscape, and more. There is also a 26-minute film to watch and a bookstore run by the Western National Parks Association.
Una Vida is a Chacoan “great house,” a large pre-planned multi-storied public building with distinctive masonry, formal earthen architecture, and a great kiva. Una Vida exists today in a near-natural state of preservation, free from major vandalism, and with only minor excavations and preservation repairs. A one-mile (1.6 km) roundtrip (including petroglyphs) trail begins at the NE corner of the visitor center parking lot. Portions are rocky, steep, and slippery when wet. Take water and travel in small groups to lessen impacts to this fragile site.
