Once parked in the small lot, the restrooms are nearby, as well as picnic areas with tables; surrounded by trees, it's quiet and serene. All in all, if just seeing the pueblo ruins and Great Kiva, the walking is about one quarter of a mile or thereabouts. This is a self-guided tour, informational boards throughout, and guidebooks at the sign-in box at the entrance to the path. No, this is not indoors; it's outdoors, so no heat in winter, no air conditioning in summer....stop whining!
Not much has changed since we were here two years ago; the trees and shrubbery might be a bit taller and fuller; but the ruins have remained the same. Lowry Pueblo is definitely a sight to see; and all around are the different mountain. ranges.
|Wooden Posts Still Inside the Walls.
A small doorway, bend down and watch your head, leads into lower rooms and a smaller kiva. There is still plaster on the walls where paintings had once been.

A lower trail from the Pueblo leads to the Great Kiva; stand back and you can make out the figures, created from stones, on the bottom.
Wandering around Lowry Pueblo is an easy hour; bring a picnic and enjoy the serenity. Better yet, make a visit to Painted Hand Pueblo, it's on the way to Hovenweek National Monument. Make a day of it!!!
