Nestled beneath the 10,000-foot peak of Glorieta Baldy, the small towns of Glorieta and Canoncito provide unparalleled solitude, beautify, and history. Famous first for the Old Santa Fe Trail that provided the main merchant route connecting the Great Plains with the Mountain West, Glorieta Pass made national news for it’s small but critical battle during the American Civil War. Later, the same pass would be used, as it is today, connecting the Panamerican Highway from Mexico to Canada.
Aside from the astounding history and scenery, Glorieta is host to a large Baptist retreat which hosts conventions and activities throughout the year. In typical New Mexico fashion, Glorieta and Canoncito pack a lot into a small place!
