Just up the road on Highway 89 north of Flagstaff can be found the ruins of Native America dating back to the Middle Ages. Multiple storied rooms with doorways intersecting can be self-toured. There are two major structures, several miles apart. One contains a circular kiva intended for worship as well as ball court. I wish I had bought a... More

We drove through wupatki and sunset crater in an afternoon. Probably took us 2-3 hours to drive through the park. Very neat because you can walk through some Indian ruins. Bring water. Sunset crater area had nice views of volcanic rock formations.

The mere fact that you are able to walk around and INTO these ruins - its quite amazing. The fact that these were built by hand gives you quite the reality check. Very educational and my 2 little girls loved it.

It was completely empty when we arrived. The sound of silence is wonderful. Ruins, gorgeous landscapes, and walking paths. What more could one ask for?

As you walk around these amazing ruins, remember that all of this was built by a stone age people. They had no metal tools, no draft animals, no wheeled vehicles. They didn't make war on their neighbors, so they didn't take slaves. They lived and farmed in peace, and created palaces, not for kings or priests, but for themselves --... More

The Visitor Center is quite good and the rangers are very helpful. This is a nice side trip on the way to/from the Grand Canyon east entrance. The Junior Ranger badge is separate from the Sunset Crater one.

Driving from Flagstaff to Wupatki is like operating a time machine. Just read the information available at the Visitor Center and immerse yourself into thinking how those ancient peoples carried out their daily life. The ruins help visualize their shelters and lifestyle. The 30 some mile loop around the area is well worth the time. Weather and clear sky make... More

Self guided tour lets you take it at your own pace. Very hot in August, do be sure to bring water. Amazing these structures still exist. Visit the visitor center for more history.

I never expecting to see such beautiful areas in the Wupatki National Monument. I was continually amazed at the history of the past volcano eruptions and what's left of it. Don't leave Flagstaff without visiting the Monument park. Truly amazing views when you take small hikes within the park.
