Such a variety of landscapes in northern Arizona, I was not prepared for the stark beauty of the prarie/plains landscape at this National Monument. I was captivated by the blonde grasses, deep blue sky and stark white clouds. To think people lived out here in the ruins that dot the landscape. Worth thinking on.

Again, was uncertain how this would turn out but we were extremely surprised. The drive was picturesque as were the various trails to the number of pueblo ruins. Trails were all well maintained. The visitor center is farther in at about 14miles but offers some nice displays as well as drinking water/restrooms. the big ruin is just out back of... More

This was a nice day trip that we did with Sunset Crater. The ruins were well preserved and interesting. The visitor's center had nice exhibits, restrooms. There was little hiking with this monument other than the walk up to the ruins and a foot path around the base.

This was one of the areas my daughters cycling team rode through and it was beautiful! Really, if your on a road trip what's the point in it if you don't slow down and take the time to see our country.

Wupatki NM is actually a series of five pueblo sites; another puzzle piece regarding the Southwest's cultural history. You must be able to use your imagination along with some basic information about these groups in order to go from these sparse rocks to visualizing the culture that made them. Then it is possible to start to realize what different lives... More

WNM has a lot of ruins so this and Sunset Crater is at least a half day's trip if you don't stop at everything (just like Joshua Tree). Particularly were the old villages by the Wupatki Indians that still stand to this day. Definitely interesting to check out for sure, and snap some photos too.

We made a visit to this location and were so happy with the hike and the scenery. The ruins were very impressive and are in very good condition. We really liked how you could see other ruins all around the canyon and not just the ones along the trail. The hike down was easy, but remember that you have to... More

Kinda out of the way but a nice drive out of Flagstaff on a loop through Sunset crater. Easy walking on good paths with info provided. Your tax dollars at work.

On the leg of our journey between Flagstaff and Monument Valley, we stumbled upon the Wupatki National Monument on Hwy 89 just north of Flagstaff. We turned off into this park on a lark and were extremely happy that we had done so. Miles of wide open plains with occasional turnoffs to preserved ruins of prehistoric pueblos circa 1100 and...
