Want to enjoy a nice picnic in the park? There are picnic areas available near the mission ruins and the Visitor Center.
If you'd like to see the Pecos pueblo and mission church on your own, at any time during park hours you can walk a 1.25 mile self-guided trail. We recommend that you allow at least an hour for the main loop trail walk.
There's also a 2.3 mile Civil War Battlefield Trail; check in at the Visitor Center and rangers will provide you with a gate code for access to the trail.
Trail guides are available at the visitor center for both of the trails and offer additional information as our hike.
Ranger ProgramsRanger-guided tours are available weekly. For some tours, reservations are strongly recommended as space is limited. Please visit our guided tour page for more information about our ranger tours.
Pecos NHP also offers fly fishing inside the park. The Pecos River stretches for three miles inside the park boundaries and requires a special use permit. If you are interesting in fishing, please visit check the Fishing at the park page for more information and fishing seasons.
