Amazing ruins

This is a great stop for a few hours, especially if you have a national parks pass. Really lovely drives around the park, and the ruins are fascinating.

The loop out to the Wupatki Ruins Natl Monument picks up as you leave Sunset Crater Natl Mon (about 8 miles ne of Flagstaff). The road out to Wupatki is excellent (about a 25 mi loop), and not heavily traveled. Very serene, quiet area--high desert just a few miles east of the Coconino NF. The old pueblos are about half...

Just a wonderful drive, with views of the Painted Desert, and lots of pullout places to walk in a see various ruins. It's very nice, we have come numerous times (we live in the Valley), and we always have a great time. Picnic places are very peaceful and clean.

A nice place to visit, with a lot of culture to see. It is a wonderful drive to the monument. In addition, you walk a trail to get to the ruins, which are wonderful.

If you like archaeology and ruins and learning about the Anasazi this is a great place. You'll need a car to drive around, and some of the hikes can be tricky because of the lava, and/or mud or snow or wind, but it's worth going. There is a blowhole, and a ball court- which is the northernmost ball court found... More

One of several ruins in Northern AZ. A nice pathway takes you right into the ruins. It's a nice walk with the Painted Desert in the background.

We drove up once while we were in Flagstaff. A bit of a drive but if you want to investigate and learn about a place this is a great place to stop at. The amazing life style and how the Indians used their natural resources to build a home is awe inspiring. The Indians played a sport in a round... More

We stopped here on a road trip from Page to Phoenix. Wupatki is not a huge monument--but it was worth a stop. You actually get 2 parks for the price of one (Sunset Crater). There is a short easy loop you can walk around from the Visitors' Center to see the ruins of an ancient people. The Visitors' Center provides... More

We found this national monument by chance while driving back from the Painted Desert/Petrified Forest and it is literally at the edge. The many settlement sites scattered throughout the monument were built by the Ancient Pueblo People. The pueblos all have a distinctive deep red color and were made from thin, flat blocks of the local Moenkopi sandstone and it... More
