Chaco Culture National Historical Park, located in the Four Corners Region of the United States, is located near the Scenic and Historic Byways of New Mexico, making the trek to Chaco a breathtaking quest. It is a three-hour drive (152 miles) West from Albuquerque.

Roads to Chaco are off the beaten path, and to fully explore the site you will need an adventurous spirit. Multiple hiking trails lead you from one architectural structure to another. Be prepared with sunscreen and water to traverse this high desert environment. It is well worth the journey.

Visiting Chaco Canyon is considered a day excursion from your home base at Hotel Chaco, our hotel in downtown Albuquerque. Journeyers are advised to leave for Chaco Canyon early in the morning and to be outfitted with appropriate hiking/camping wear and gear including sunscreen and plenty of water. Overnight camping is available in Chaco Canyon by the National Park Service.
