The monument is one of those hidden treasures you come across occasionally. We've traveled through this area three times before spotting it. We took the guided tour for $12/person and worth every penny. Guide Susan (volunteer) was exceptional with knowledge of the area and the...More

We took just the self guided tour as we got there too late to go to the top. We were certainly not disappointed with the self guided audio tour. It is an easy hike with much to learn and see.

About 15 miles from town. Last couple are a well maintained dirt road. No fee park, but upper tour fee required. Volunteer staff were polite, knowledgable, and friendly. The hike up is moderate. Check the weather as they don'tdo the top tour in rain as...More

This was an outstanding place to visit. Our tour was guided by an archeologist with a lot of knowledge of the Chaco people. The first hour was an easily walkable trail around the ruins. The second hour was a fairly strenuous uphill hike up to...More

Wow really spectacular in every way. Inexpensive to do the two hour tour, nice easy van shuttle to the starting area. It's a little over a mile hike, so wear good shoes. I have a bit of vertigo, but was able to make it to...More

I am very sorry for the miscommunication you experienced. I would like to take a moment to explain how the program and fees work at Chimney Rock National Monument. Our non-profit organization works in partnership with the USDA National Forest. Chimney Rock is a highly...More

Very disappointed they do not offer ADA compliant tours. A beautiful setting and you must park at the Park Entrance no vehicles allowed further than that. Not hard to miss so keep eyes out for signs. A hidden treasure we wish we could have seen.More

Thank you for your feedback and I am sorry for the confusion. Chimney Rock National Monument (Colorado) offers one tour that is ADA accessible. (The Kiva Trail) It can be toured self-guided with an audio device or with a tour guide. We also have handicapped...More

Our tour guide, Ernie, was incredibly knowledgeable and respectful of this ancient archaeological site. The hike to the top was a little challenging because of altitude (for seniors) but well worth it. This is a must see if you're in the area or make it...More

We enjoyed our two and half hour experience at Chimney Rock. The entire experience is outside with little shade. The upper tour is not for those who have difficulty walking. However, there is plenty for they to enjoy on the loweer tour.
