Main Ruins Loop Trail - Cave Dwellings and Long House

Bandelier National Monument

Simply put, the Main Ruins Loop Trail epitomizes Bandelier National Monument. Showcasing some of the country's most unique Ancestral Pueblo ruins, this loop trail is the most popular destination in Bandelier. Few places afford the opportunity to explore ancient cave dwellings which take you back thousands of years into the lives of the Ancestral Pueblo people. This is an interpretive trail with 21 individual markers along the trail. An interpretive guide for the 21 markers is available for a small fee at the Visitor Center and is highly recommended. This trail guide will provide insight into anthropological, ecological and geological information pertaining to the ruins, as well as flora and fauna.
