Great place to walk and view at your own pace. Nothing like seeing history in Arizona, and seeing it in person. BUT if you have a senior citizen who needs walking assistance, a walker or a cane, this can be a bit challenging for them.

We live locally, but I hadn't been here for 25 years. I had my 5, 8, and 10 year old grandsons and wanted to keep them entertained for the afternoon. We went to Montezuma castle, parked, paid $10 for me to get in (they were free) and we moved quickly to the castle, hurried to the creek and were back... More

Stopped for a quick tour through the area and truly enjoyed learning about how the early settlers lived here up on the cliffs. Definitely worth stoping.

This was a worthwhile stop for sure. We visited on a weekday but it was still pretty busy. Parking area was pretty full. The scenery is fantastic and the ruins are beautifully preserved. There are sign boards along the walkway to provide information. It's an easy walk and accessible by even those who may have a mobility device. Not necessarily... More

It is amazing to think back 100's of years ago and what it took to build this Castle. While we were gazing a volunteer came by and offered us a lot of history, not only was he informative, he was funny and interacted with the kids in our group.

Feel fortunate that we got a good parking spot upon arrival during peak season. Wow! This was such a worthwhile monument to experience. You really need to put yourself in the mental,physical, social and spiritual head space to acknowledge and realize what it was like living here at the time.

This was a great hike, and a real cool view back into history. The cave dwellers had a beautiful view of the river, a great flatland to grow, and a nice open canyon to view.

If you're in the area you should take the time to see this. It's a fascinating piece of history and ingenuity. The fee also includes admission to the Tuzigoot Ruins as well. It's a bit of a drive but another interesting piece of history.

Thank Aunt_Pam
