Made a stop on our way through the area. Worth seeing the ruins--really well-preserved and educational too. Beautiful location.

“An old settlement”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

It's worth a stop if you are on your way to lake Powell. Not much is there but if you use your imagination you can envision the way of life the Indians before us lived.

“Very interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Easy drive from Flagstaff. Short informative hikes to the different ruins. The visitor center isn't much, but worth going to.

“Don't miss the blowhole!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

This was great. The ruins are interesting and the way that the pueblos incorporate the rugged natural rock outcrop is really neat. Hike around the pueblos, but also be sure to walk all the way to the end of the path where there is a special surprise -- a natural blowhole! Sometimes air blows out, sometimes air is sucked in. Very cool! There is a plaque nearby explaining the hypothesis thought to cause this feature.

“Great View of History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

My family and I really enjoyed Wupatki. It is an amazingly preserved ruin and worth the visit. Just a short walk from the parking lot and simply amazing to imagine life in those days.
