Una Vida reviews
The hike to Una Vida offers a great introduction to the ruins in the canyon, with the trailhead right by the visitor center. The hike is not technical. Though the final 100’ ascent is much steeper..... more »
It is a short hike to the ruins and the petroglyphs, which are amazing. Climbing up you get wonderful views of the canyon and a good sampling of their wall building techniques. more »
Una Vida is a good start to a Chaco Canyon trip. A mostly flat gravel trail leads from the visitor center to the site. There isn't much left of the ruins, so unfortunately there isn't a whole lot to see relative to the other sites in the park. However, it also provides a good view of Fajada Butte to the south, and the hike up to the petroglyphs makes it worthwhile.
