While the Grand Canyon gets the notoriety, Wupatki National Monument is, in my opinion, the best that Arizona has to offer. What is so wonderful about this monument is that the park service is very hands off here meaning that you do not feel like you're in some well constructed tourist trap. Instead, you get to guide yourself through miles... More

After hiking the trails at Sunset Crater, we continued through the park for the next 21 miles or so stopping at the various overlooks. Soon the landscape was changing from pines to plains. Some areas looking like what I would expect to see in the serengeti and there was the fields of Junipers. Soon we were at the other side... More

We took the loop that began with Sunset Crater National Monument and continued into Wupatki National Monument. We enjoyed hiking to each of the pueblo ruins. Definitely worth visiting and checking it out!

We did not find this worth the $20 (even adding Sunset Crater) or the time it took to get there. It's not original, most is reconstructed. Very disappointing. We thought Walnut Canyon was more interesting.

Wupatki provides a great overview of the life of the Native Americans who inhabited the area. In addition to the "apartment-like" dwellings, there is a rare ball court and a blow hole that is influenced by the changes in atmospheric pressure.

My wife and I went here to gain an appreciation of the folks that use to inhabit this region hundreds of years ago. Easy hikes to most of the ruins. Peaceful and quiet out here ...

Out of the way but well worth the drive. The Ranger was informative and friendly over at the visitor center. It's a short walk and make sure to take your camera when you do. Don't miss the "blowhole". It behaves differently depending on the weather.

We drove the loop off 89 north through Sunset Crater and Wupataki National Park. It takes about an hour to drive the loop and the scenery is beautiful. Be careful when programming your GPS as it initially took us to a weird location on 89 north in Flagstaff which is probably where the administrative offices are located. You can get... More

If you like history and you're outside of Flagstaff.. Turn off the highway and quickly check this out!

My husband and I found the ruins very interesting. One of the main ruins is at the visitors center so do not pass that up like we almost did. You take a long scenic drive and can see two more ruins. One ruin has a trail you can walk on and it leads you up to a panoramic view of... More
