“Take a camera and wear sensible shoes!”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

This is well worth visiting. The pueblo is amazing and from the site there is a spectacular view of the Painted Desert. Native plants are labeled as to what they are and what they were used for. The staff are helpful and knowledgeable too,

“Impressive”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

After living here for nearly 70 years we always marvel at what we have missed. The is a park that anyone close to Flagstaff should go and view. The ruins are magnificient and if you are lucky enough to find a ranger close by to hear the story of this wonder you will be in awe of how the natives lived hundreds of years ago. Don't miss it and better yet just take the time to drive this way and make a visit.

“Amazing sunsets”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

You must go here to watch the sunset. Absolutely breathtaking. We rushed over here after spending the day in the Grand Canyon and we were not disappointed. We were then treated to a spectacular storm coming in, at which point we rushed back into our car before it got too close!

“vast vistas and up close pueblo views”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

We have passed this National Monument 18 miles north of Flagstaff more times than we can count and never stopped to see what it was all about. This week we made time - went in - and were saddened that we hadn't visited before. There are various offshoot roads that take you to the different pueblos with ample parking. The entrance into the monument gives no clue as to the things you will see - enough ancient ruins for everyone. Since we arrived at the hottest time of the day, we did not take all the trails available, nor did we go into the visitor information center before going to the ruins. It is easy to envision what attracted people to settle this area. We took lots of photos from the monument's main road as there are very few main road pull offs and some of the best views of the land itself are from the road. We drove the the whole loop and did find one road not marked "authorized vehicles only" and took a 6 mile side trip. This was a road more for 4 wheel drive/pickups/high lift type vehicles than the family sedan due to gravel, rocks, ruts and washes. The geology of the small canyons and rock faces was incredible. The ruins alone are worth taking tie time to stop. In the future, we will make the visit again and walk all the trails. It is our opinion that the monument is worth several more visits.
