Aztec Ruins, visitors step back in time as they walk a short, self-guided trail through a 900-year-old ancestral Pueblo Great House. The park integrates the perspectives of archeologists and modern Native American peoples into a trail guide that can be purchased for $2. Also on-site are a visitor center with museum, 15-minute video, picnic area, and bookstore. One to two hours is recommended for these activities. Park hours are 8 a.m.-5 p.m. daily, 8 a.m.-6 p.m. from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day; advanced reservations are requested. The entrance fee is $5 per adult. The park accepts cash, credit cards, and checks with address and tax ID number. America the Beautiful pass holders, children, and bus drivers/tour directors are free. The park easily accommodates groups of 50 or more and has a pick-up/drop-off area and free bus parking just west of the visitor center. All groups will receive an orientation from a ranger when they arrive. Visitors must stay on the marked, self-guided trail. Off-trail traffic is damaging to the fragile archeological resources. No dining is available on site, but many excellent options are just minutes away in the historic City of Aztec.
