Glorieta Battlefield Coalition

Battlefield Tours are available through Pecos National Historical Park. Because a major road (NM Highway 50) cuts directly through the unit, Glorieta Battlefield is unsafe for pedestrians and is therefore closed to unescorted visitors. There is only one minor interpretive sign at the site (a state highway marker at Windmill Hill) and no visitor facilities. East of the core battlefield are two monuments to the soldiers in the New Mexico Campaign. These are accessible to visitors. Guided tours of the battlefield and related sites are available by reservation only. The tours depart by van from the Pecos National Historical Park Visitors Center, and are included in the cost of park admission.
