This stop along our drive from the Grand Canyon to Jerome was the highpoint of our trip. I only wish I had been aware of where the loop would exit onto hyw89 and given us more time to explore the entire loop. We did drive in as far as the first two ruins and it was well worth the time.... More

This is worth the short drive from Flagstaff. You can enjoy 1000 years of history here ans get beautiful views of the painted desert.

Give yourself plenty of time and do both Sunset Crater and Wupatki. Bring a lunch or at least plenty of water and snacks. We did have enough time to visit every thing that we wanted to. Very well worth the trip.

This was our last stop on a week long road trip to Sedona and the Grand Canyon. This area is full of history, beauty, interest, and short easy hikes! We started at Sunset Crater. Quick stop at the visitor center (fyi, Dana was super friendly and helpful) to grab the trail guide for lava flow trail which was definitely necessary... More

We didn't have much time so we only visited the main pueblo Wutpaki. If we had more time I would have liked to look at all 6. Be sure to pick up a guide at the visitors center. It is filled with lots of interesting information. The trail was a very easy walk. The scenic loop between Wutpaki and Sunset... More

Do not get deceived by its entrance, the drive and landscaping are beautiful ! The area of the park (monument) is located in a "parallel" road out of US 89 with two entrances, approximately 34 miles loop. At the North you will see the Ruins and at the South you will see the Volcano and the Pine Forest area. Entering... More

This monument and Sunset Crater can be done via a 90 mile loop out of Flag. A day pass is needed ( $5 if I remember correctly) Wupatki has an informative interpretive centre and you can walk around the impressive ruins. be sure to down to the end of the trail ( maybe a 4 min. walk) to the blow...

We stopped here after leaving the Grand Canyon. Once you turn off the main highway you will drive a few miles then you will start seeing the smaller ruins such as Box Canyon and Lomaki. You should stop and walk to them because they are interesting and less crowded than the main village which is by the visitor center. The... More

These ruins are very similar to one's we have close to home. Wupatki is well maintained and very interesting!! Staff was friendly. Easy access, not much walking required to view all the different ruins. I would recommend to a friend! The fee is shared with the Sunset Volcano, so you get to see both for same price.
