Highlights Tour the Pecos National Historical Park then explore a Civil War battlefield. Extras may include a talk about medical practices during the Civil War or reenactments.

Trailhead Directions I-25 north from Albuquerque. Take exit 299 on to Hwy 50 to the Pecos village then south two miles on State Road 63 to the Pecos National Historical Park. If you've made prior arrangements and prefer a self-guided tour of the Glorieta Battlefield, you can get directions and borrow keys to the entrance gate from the front desk at the Pecos NHP.

Actual Hike This is a Multiple Hike in the Pecos. See the Actual Hike for Pecos NHP - Glorieta Battlefield by clicking here and for the Pecos NHP - Pecos Ruins by clicking here.

Comments Admission is $3.00 per person or bring a Golden Age Passport or other National Park Pass. Reservations are required for groups who want to take guided tours. For this hike, it might be fun to do some homework ahead of time so we can ask penetrating questions of our tour guides. If you want to take a guided tour of the battlefield in addition to the morning guided tour of the ruins, you'll need to arrange a late return with the senior center. Most tours are only offered from Memorial Day through Labor Day. For tour options and reservations, see the park website .
