Prior to the Stories at Sunset program, a guided tour of the Great House Pueblo Trail will be offered for 25 people. Be aware that it is a dirt and rock trail, 1/4 mile, going up 200 feet in elevation, with one section being steep, rocky, uneven steps.  Sturdy shoes required and walking pole suggested for those needing help with balance.  Water is encouraged.

Following the tour, guests will gather at the Great Kiva as sunset approaches, to hear about Native American culture, history and stories. Afterwards, you’ll return to the upper parking lot to enjoy the sunset.


Bring a blanket or camp chair for comfort, a light jacket, and a flashlight to light your way back to your vehicle after sunset.  Parents are asked to closely supervise their children for the safety of all attendees.  Water is encouraged; all other food and beverages are allowed only at the Visitor Cabin area.  This is a reservations-only program.
