We had been here a few years ago and enjoyed going back. The tour guides were great and you could tell they enjoyed their jobs and wanted to share their knowledge of the history. My advise to people with knees or hips replaced is to...More
Guided tour was informative and interesting. Requires a short climb (no hand rails) of about a quarter mile to the cliff dwelling and another quarter mile to the petroglyphs. Cliff dwellings are estimated to date back to 1275 and still have original construction. Petroglyphs are...More
Got here a little bit too late to enjoy all there was to explore. Did catch the pictograph panel and the guides translations of the drawings and the history of the area. It was free to check out after driving along a gravel road for...More
I drove up to the ruins and was able to sign up on the spot for a tour. The tours are every 30 minutes. We were sent up the trail first to the ruins. A guide met us there. The ruins are not all that...More
Carefully follow the signs off Hwy 89A and take the 7 mile drive to the park. There you will find a parking lot. From there take a short walk to the office where you are instructed on where to go to meet your tour guide....More
I liked the site, always enjoyable to learn more about the history of our country. The staff at the park were very helpful and friendly. I would have liked to be able to go further down the trails. Overall enjoyable
Wonderful historical tour in a beautiful part of the country. The volunteers who gave the tours were knowledgeable and very friendly. Definitely make reservations ahead of time, they weren’t allowing folks without reservations in on the day we went because it was busy. Also know...More
A well preserved site that can be accessed with a regular SUV (even a car it seems). You need to call to reserve as they don't want tons of people showing up at the same time. While we were there, people did just show up...More
Yes it is definitely illegal to remove any type of artifact from a historical site. At Palatki the docents have a silver case that holds various artifacts for use during their presentation. Maybe this is what the photo is of.
Thanks all who helped me figure this out. I leave for GCNP on 3/29-4/3. We fly to PHX and rent a car. Staying in Flagstaff. I (me +son) plan to cover these in no specific order (see below). Couple of questions: 1. Should we buy weekly pass? How many of these places would we be charged National Park entrance? 2. Weather wise: would it be safe to pack for spring time weather +jacket in case of snow/evening weather? Many thanks in advance. SEDONACathedral Rock,Oak Creek Canyon,Bell...More

I'm afraid that you've got too much on your lists. If, in fact, you were able to get to all of the national monuments,recreation areas and GCNP, then it might be advisable to buy the annual park pass. In reality, you need to cut back on what you think you'll be doing, especially on day trips from Flagstaff. Your Sedona list alone needs at least 2 full days. The Flag list is doable in a day or combined with Page or the GCNP, with the exception of Grand Falls. That's a day trip on it's own...More

Doable though slightly over planned. Include the Chapel of the Holy Cross on your way to see Bell Rock. You don't need a jeep or SUV. Put Harry's Hideaway on your restaurant list. It's off the beaten path in Cornville. Well worth the drive.
