For the weekly van tours (Wednesdays: Forked Lightning Ranch house; Fridays: Civil War sites tour), a reservation is strongly recommended as seating is limited. Call 505-757-7241 to reserve a space.
The summer daily tour schedule, which runs from Memorial Day through Labor Day, features a ranger-guided ancestral sites tour each day at 10 am. There are no reservations required for this tour, which leaves from 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). You'll be provided with a thorough written interpretive guide that will explain the sights.
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
- a 12-minute introductory film
There are picnic areas near the mission ruins and at the Visitor Center.
