Pecos National Historical Park will offer a ranger-guided hike to the site of the Forked Lightning Pueblo Tour on Sunday, September 9th. Along the two mile roundtrip backcountry hike to the remnants of this 13th century pueblo, you will explore the fascinating history of this large settlement that sits near Glorieta Creek. The pueblo, which housed hundreds of people primarily between 1225 and 1300 AD, was described and mapped by noted archaeologist A.V. Kidder in the late 1920s. Much has been learned about this historical treasure since then—come see for yourself!

This 2.5 hour program is an off-trail hike along uneven terrain through areas frequented by snakes. Visitors interested in the tour must reserve a spot, as space is limited to 20 participants. Attendees will meet at 8:30 a.m. in the Upper Parking Lot adjacent to the ruins of the mission church. On October 14th, 2018.
