Hikes & Excursions

Staying physically active is one of the best ways to keep your mind and body healthy. The Center for Disease Control states that in many areas, people can visit parks, trails, and open spaces as a way to relieve stress, get some fresh air, and stay active. While these facilities and areas can offer health benefits, it is important that you follow the steps below to protect yourself and others from COVID-19. Simple guidelines include:

  • Stay at least 6 feet away from people you don’t live with.

  • Wear a mask.

  • Wash your hands often and don’t share items with people you don’t live with.

Member-Only Hikes

One of the advantages of Membership is the ability to participate in guided hikes to archaeological sites. Watch this page for announcements of upcoming hikes. Most are free but a few have small fees to cover expenses. 


PASSION FOR PETROS  -  November 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 2021

Join us as we spend five days and six nights in the Santa Fe and Albuquerque area of New Mexico. This landscape is abundant with petroglyphs, those powerful cultural symbols on rock faces, from “those who came before”, dating from Archaic through Historic times. 


We will have private guided tours, exploring several petroglyph-rich locations each of four days. Snacks and water will be supplied daily for all the site excursions. The fifth day ties it all together, with an understanding of the people who created the petroglyphs, as we hear from their descendants, the current Puebloans.


The hikes are short, but can be moderately steep, so sturdy shoes and hiking poles are recommended.  Bring a hat, sunscreen and whatever else helps you stay comfortable and healthy.
