Wish we could have been here in the 40's when you could climb up, what a great place!

Very worthwhile visiting. We did it on our way to the airport, so it was a shorter stop than we would have liked. The castle is so amazing! High up there, just like at Walnut... read more

After seeing Montezuma's well, my husband and kids were excited to see the Castle. They were underwhelmed after their experience at the well. It's $10 for adults and kids are free. We only stayed for about 30 minutes and most of that was walking. There's one major dwelling to see (the castle) and few smaller cliff areas. The volunteers were... More

Very worthwhile visiting. We did it on our way to the airport, so it was a shorter stop than we would have liked. The castle is so amazing! High up there, just like at Walnut Canyon, tho a bit easier to access. However, also later occupied. The beauty and history here are easily seen, photo'd and the walkway is accessible... More

This is on cliffside dwelling that is more impressive than any I have seen. There is a charge but I had my pass that allowed me to attend free. It is a short walk to the dwelling and there is another pueblo that is basically gone but for the rocks on the ground. There are also holes in the limestone... More

Teddy Roosevelt is a hero. This is an easy and beautiful stop. Parking is a bit short. It's an easy walk to see the "castle." Nice stroll. Flip-flop and wheelchair friendly

Overpriced for what it is. Cool if you want to look at a wall. Took about 5 minutes to do the whole "tour"

Go early in the day and enjoy the walks and scenery. Many picture opportunities, but all are from a distance. Very interesting history, and the plaques are quite informative.

Easy to view, paved trail to the ruins. The whole loop is approximately 3/10's of a mile. The have a great diorama of what they think the rooms looked like.

Hard to believe people lived that high up back in the 1200's and sustained a life and community in the rocks. Extraordinary to visit and learn about these people. Great for pictures! Nice national run park.

Super cool experience. Bring lots of water. The bird action is unbelieveable especially the hummingbirds calling this home. Trying awe inspiring to be among some of our elders in spirit.

A very quick site because it's look don't touch. they do a great job with signage and a 3-d mockup, but doesn't hold a candle to Tuzigoot and Montezuma's Well which you can get more up close and personal. You can feel those sites you can only see this one from a distance.
