“A hidden gem on the way to or from the Grand canyon”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Whether travelling to or from the Grand Canyon along highway 89 you will not regret stopping here for the history, pueblos and ancient American Indian ruins.
The road, entered from either the north Wupatki pueblos or the Sunset Crater Volcano south entrance, is in very good condition. Some of the smaller turnoffs are like little gems. The longest trail that I remember is only an easy 1/2 mile on a gravel walkway.
It is amazing just how many cinder cones and volcanos dot the area. The major pueblos are quite amazing, even though some have been rebuilt due to artifact hunters, vandals and erosion. The kids we saw at the Wupatki Visitor center loved the blowhole at the end of the trail.

“Awesome...”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

My first visit here was 25 years ago. I enjoyed it just as much this visit as the first time. The history is fascinating & the landscape is gorgeous. This is a great way to spend a day outdoors.

“beautiful history”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

This unique American Indian location is gorgeous. Well signed with information. You can envision life as it must have been centuries ago. Great to combine with the loop road around to the crater.
