A Mysterious Ancient Observatory

This amazing ten-mile canyon was a major centre of ancestral Pueblo culture between 850 and 1250.  Located in the Northwest corner of New Mexico, Chaco Canyon was a focus for ceremonials, trade and political activity for the prehistoric Four Corners area.

Chaco Facts:

  • Contains the most sweeping collection of ancient ruins north of Mexico
  • Preserves one of the most important pre-Columbian cultural and historical areas in the United States
  • Chacoan building may have been aligned to capture the solar and lunar cycles, requiring generations of astronomical observations and centuries of skillfully coordinated construction
  • Sites are considered sacred ancestral homelands by the Hopi and Pueblo people

This park is on the Trails of the Ancients Byway, one of the designated New Mexico Scenic Byways.

Explore Chaco through guided tours, hiking and biking trails, campfire talks, and night sky programs with the National Park Service.  www.nps.gov
