Pueblo Alto Trail: Chaco Culture National Historical Park Professional Review and Guide

"This 5.6-mile lollipop hike is a moderate stroll from the Chaco Canyon floor to the canyon rim. The hike along the Pueblo Alto Trail will take hikers to several scenic overlooks of Chaco Canyon as well as views of a unique set of stairs that have been carved into the canyon wall. Be sure to check the park website for closures that may occur during flash flood seasons.

The Pueblo Alto Trail offers some of the best views of Chaco Canyon. Nearly half of this trail allows hikers an opportunity
to walk along the canyon rim. In addition to the canyon views, hikers can see some of the ruins that lie above the canyon."
