Kin Bineola sits approximately 12 miles southwest of Pueblo Bonito. Although it is not inside of Chaco proper, this site is still part of Chaco Culture National Historical Park. It used to be open to visitors, but at present, the park has restricted access to Kin Bineola. Now is your chance to visit this amazing place once again!

The tour will be lead by Dr. Ruth Van Dyke, a professional archaeologist specializing in the North American Southwest, particularly Chaco Canyon.  She will escort attendees out to the Kin Bineola great house site, followed by a hike up a nearby mesa where you’ll enjoy beautiful views while having a lunch break. You’ll then travel back down and ascend Teardrop Mesa, where you’ll visit more small archaeological sites that dot the area. At various points in the tour, participants will have the option of returning to their cars or continuing to hike to additional locations.

For more information on the tour or to reserve your spot, visit their website. $200.
