The Salinas Pueblo Missions is made up of 3 parts. 1. Quarai, 2. Gran Quivira, 3. Abo -- A great free family trip that can be done in one long day or broken up. Each place has a path that goes around and sometimes through the ruins and that in itself can add up to a nice walk. Quarai alone has a separate trail that is a mile loop known as the Spanish Corral Loop. Nice easy Hike.
