“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

This is a beautiful canyon with lots of ancient Indian cliff dwellings. For those that like to hike, you can actually hike into the canyon & get an up close view of the dwellings. For those that don't want to hike, there is very good information & views at the rim.

“Interesting experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

You need to be in shape to climb down the stairs and back up again but what you see makes it worth it. The ancient pueblos carved into the canyon wall overhangs are fascinating and well worth the exertion.
