“Very cool”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2012

Free to get into and a very nice attraction. Lots of beautiful scenery and a very pleasant walk along the aqueduct / river. It is one exit up from the castle so be sure to check out both!

“Water out of a rock???”

Indian legend believes that the tribs move from one level to another and believed they came to this level thru the well. The well get shut down from time to time for Indian Tribs to come and perform their spirtual rituals

“Don't miss the aquaduct!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

This is a short (but definitely uphill) hike to a spring that was used by Native American Indians. There are several very well preserved cliff dwellings that overlook the spring. If you are brave enough you can take the steps that lead down to a short walk around the edge of the spring--and yes then hike back up the steps. Do NOT MISS walking down the other side of the spring to the aquaduct. You will not believe how well constructed and well preserved this aquaduct is! Don't forget to take water with you--the hike up is hot!

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

Another must do - and if you're adventerous take the back roads rather than the highway to get there. The ancient ruins and cave/cliff dwellings are amazing. Unbelievable to think primitive people lived in the caves. The geological history is most impressive. Take the stairs and go down into the well and feel how warm the water is.
