While the road to reach here is a bit rough, it was well worth the trip especial if you enjoy learning about pre-European American history and culture. We did not arrive in time to see the ruins, but did get to see the amazing petroglyphs....More

Palataki Ruins was one of my favorite places to visit on my trip. As there is a lot of climbing I do recommend you arrive as early as possible because it gets very hot. Also, the ranger's office where you check in provides walking sticks,...More

Two notes: (1) make a reservation for a time slot before you arrive and (2) allow time for the drive out. Our B&B was in Village of Oak Creek, and the Friday we went, took an hour to drive to the site. The primitive roads...More

This was an amazing and unique experience. The six mile road in is awful - dirt and potholes, but well worth the bumps. Reservations are recommended to go up to the cliff dwellings, but we arrived at 2:00 (without reservations) on a week day and...More

Altogether, this was an interesting trip. The site isn't far from Sedona at all. The last 7 miles of the road are through the dessert on a gravel road, which adds a little to the adventure. There's no charge for the tour. The site was...More

Yes, you can reach Palatki from Dry Creek Road/Fay Canyon. A little less dirt road but still about 5 miles of dirt road. Signage on that way is better. It is also more scenic that wat.

There was no charge, but if you leave a donation it stays with Palatki and is used gratefully. Many of the docents are volunteers.
