This national monument has several very good mission ruins and great trails that go through the mission grounds.

Really pleasant hike. Very educational. Super easy. Took tons of photos. Went with my husband, MIL, 2 teen sons, and our dog.

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.
