Well laid out easy paths to walk to see the ruins. The path was easy and made for wheelchair or challenged individuals. Plenty of benches to rest and great makers to read. The markers give history and description for the visitors. The day we were there a flute player added a mystery to the enchantment of a special place. Do... More

Anyone can enjoy this attraction! We loved the easy walk to view the ruins. The information plates along the way are very informative. we were in awe learning how people lived so long ago. Don't miss this when cruising to or from Sedona!

Sunny spring like afternoon visit. We approached the site listening to live traditional flute music, which seemed to make it a solemn procession into the past.

This is a well maintained, fascinating place to see some cliff dwelling. There is a short (1/3 mile) trail past the dwelling and the river. Worth a stop and the admission!

Who knew? Take time to stop and spend some time here. Great for the entire family. The history is amazing and the dwellings are unreal. Certainly makes one stop to think. Well worth the stop and admission price.

This is a fabulous national monument that is a must visit if you go to the Sedona, AZ, area. Simply an amazing feat of architecture from so long ago. There are rangers there to answer you questions and provide you with history of the monument.

This National Park is just a few minutes from the interstate. It is worth a visit. The ruins are well preserved and signage is informative. An easy walk from the visitor's center. If I had it to do over again, I would go left instead of right at the fork in the path. This way I would come upon the... More

What a beautiful location to create a community. It's easy to get to and just a couple of minutes off the freeway. I found this site so fascinating. I could easily envision a community here. There's a lovely river, trees, room for corn fields, and they could easily build into the rock and create the rooms they needed. When looking... More
