    Welcome to Fort Union National Monument's self-guided mobile tour! We hope that your tour of the grounds will be enjoyable as you learn of the numerous components, structures, and history that made up the largest military post in the American Southwest during the 19th century. 

    To begin your tour, choose one of the following options: 

    1. Select the location listed below that you wish to learn about.

    OR 

    2. Press the Magnifying Glass icon on the top right and enter a tour stop number. 

    Once you have selected the location you wish to learn about, you can visit the next or previous site on the tour by selecting the links located at the bottom of the screen. 

    For your safety, please remain on the trail at all times. The adobe remnants are quire fragile and oftentimes serve as ideal nesting areas for the prairie rattlesnake.

    We recommend a hat, sunscreen, sturdy walking shoes year-round while exploring the park grounds.
