This combination package begins at the upper parking lot with a one-hour guided tour of the Pueblo Trail.  You’ll see several unexcavated sites along the way to the Great House Pueblo, with awe-inspiring views of the San Juan Mountains and the two pinnacles. This moderately-challenging unimproved trail has a 200-foot elevation gain and exposure to heights and steep drop-offs. Parents are asked to closely supervise their children for the safety of all attendees.

Following the tour, two Pueblo dance groups will gather at Chimney Rock to dance in the Great Kiva, home to their ancestors. The Acoma Rain Dancers from Acoma Pueblo and the Oak Canyon dancers from Jemez Pueblo are both all-children dance groups. This culturally significant event will be both powerful and captivating. There can be no better way to connect with Chimney Rock than through the descendants of the Ancient Puebloan people performing celebratory dances in traditional dress. Guests should plan to stand for the performance, or bring their own camp chairs or blankets. Each performance will include both dance groups; duration of the programs may vary depending on the specific dances presented.

Tickets are $20 plus a booking fee ($7.50 for children 5-12) and are non-refundable. In the event of cancellation due to inclement weather, rain checks will be available. For details, please call the Visitor Cabin (970-883-5359) 9:00 – 4:00 Mountain Time.
