Pecos National Historical Park preserves Indian pueblos and Pecos cultural remains. Visitors learn about the park's ancient cultural exchange and geography.
Pecos holds 12,000 years of history, including two Spanish Colonial Missions, Santa Fe Trail sites, 20th century ranch history of Forked Lightning Ranch, and the site of the Civil War Battle of Glorieta Pass. The ruins trail, picnic area, and visitor center are the only areas currently open to visitors at this time. Closed areas such as the Forked Lightning Ranch, the Santa Fe Trail, and the Civil War Battlefield of Glorieta are available only through ranger guided tours.
