Bandelier National Monument protects over 33,000 acres of rugged but beautiful canyon and mesa country as well as evidence of a human presence here going back over 11,000 years. Petroglyphs, dwellings carved into the soft rock cliffs, and standing masonry walls pay tribute to the early days of a culture that still survives in the surrounding communities.

2 hours south of the ranch, a great place on the way to stop and stretch your legs! Indian Cliff Dwellings are truly fascinating and hold a lot of historical value. Rainbow Trout Ranch is fortunate to be located in such a close proximity to many national monuments, parks, and forests.
