Worth the drive

It is a drive from Flagstaff but ruins are great. They are large and there are lots of them to hike around.

The loop through the park is very nice and the Pueblo was impressive (the kids played Castel). If you combine that with the Sunset Crater National Monument that makes a very nice afternoon

Worth a visit, it is quite a long drive but is quite impressive bearing in mind how old it is and the harsh conditions it has survived in. Avoid the toilet nearby, not a pleasant visit.

Nice scenic drive. Road was well maintained. Ruins are well preserved. We walked the entire ruins and at the end is a Blow Hole. It is also an experience you do not want to miss out on. Grounds are clean. The visitor center is well kept and details information about the ruins. Cost for our family was $30 to see... More

When you first step onto a current Native American protected site, you are in a holy place and needs to be respected an revered as such. I see too many tourists treating places as exquisite as Wupatki, Tuzigoot, Montezuma Castle, etc as an extention of Disneyland. They are loud and disrespectful of the current and former peoples of the area.... More

Awesome ruins to see , be sure to check out all of them , as they are in different locations. You can see why they built them were they did ...heck I'd put a house there LOL . Well worth the drive and short hikes.

This is an excellent example of how Native Americans lived 500 or more years ago. The ruins are well preserved. Well worth a short diversion on your way to or from the Grand Canyon from Flagstaff.

This is a wonderful area to educate your children on the wonderful area near the Grand Canyon. I don't believe our schools teach enough about native Americans and this is a great place to get up close to what they have endured and overcome.
