This is a must stop national monument. Small and easy to do, just off the Interstate. Wonderful cliff dwellings without all of the crowds. Use your National Parks Pass for free entrance,

After an overnight stay at a local campground, we drove less than 5 miles and toured the grounds of this amazing historical site. Well worth any price to pay.

This incredible cliff dwelling inhabited by Native American Sinagua people between 1100 and 1425 is stunning and spectacular. How could children and adults safely make their way up the sheer rock face to this 5 story dwelling high above the ground? Where did they cook?...More

We stopped here on our way to Sedona to stretch our legs and thought it was well worth it. Nice National Park to visit. It costs $10 a person to enter if you don't have a National Park pass. Easy short paved walk to Castle.

This was a neat castle to see and learn about. It is a one third mile paved walk. Worth seeing and learning about!

This little gem sits off the highway between Phoenix and Flagstaff. It was $10 per person and had ample parking on a Saturday afternoon in late March. We are awed by history, so this was a must see and well worth it, to us. It...More

Although historically this place is interesting it is probably not worth to spend your money and time to see, especially considering how many more things around that area are worth seeing. Take a look on the picture and that is basically it, there is nothing...More

No. There is a gently slipping walkway that would be appropriate for a walker though. The "ruins" are not extensive and the path is quite short.
