Chaco Culture NHP Backcountry Trail Guide
The backcountry hiking trails of Chaco Culture National Historical Park provide visitors with a rare opportunity to experience present-day solitude and sweeping vistas of the canyon and mesa landscape; to see the impressive Chacoan great houses, roads, and features in an undeveloped setting; and to better understand the scope and extent of the Chaco world. Chaco Culture National Historical Park preserves a special chapter in human history. It was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987, joining a select list of protected areas "whose outstanding natural and cultural resources for the common inheritance of all mankind."
We hope that you will find meaning, value, and inspiration in visiting and preserving the legacy of Chacoan Culture, along with the remains of other cultures found throughout the park.
