Chimney Rock National Monument is an archaeological site that covers seven square miles and preserves 200 ancient homes and ceremonial buildings of the ancient Puebloans. Some of the structures have been excavated for viewing and exploration: a Great Kiva, a Pit House, a Multi-Family Dwelling, and a Chacoan-style Great House Pueblo. Chimney Rock is the highest in elevation of all the Chacoan sites, at about 7,000 feet above sea level. From the base, the hike to the top is just a half mile and it’s rewarded with dramatic 360-degree views of Colorado and New Mexico.
