  • We didn't have time to do a tour, which would no doubt be wonderful. I'd love to come back and do the guided hikes which I'm sure would be very educational, from what I heard from tourists upon their ...  more »

  • Local Indian guide. Tour is almost required because unescorted visitors have been caught defacing the site. Be prepared to use carved rock ladder and wood ladder for descent. BYO picnic. Good views.
  • This historical site is home to the ancestors of Santa Clare people who lived there from 800 to 1550 AD. The site and the visitors center with informative exhibit are managed by the tribal members and excellent for both adult and young visitors. Highly recommend to get a visceral sense of history, for the stunning view, and well preserved dwellings. We regret not having gone on a guided tour led by the very descendents of the people who lived there.
  • A must see! So beautiful and rich with history I would highly recommend checking this place out.
  • Stunning views along the way, very informative, well maintained and a fascinating look at a a way of life before us, preserved in this historical monument. I'm so glad we got to make the trip out.
  • Fascinating look back in time. If you are at all interested in the history of Native Americans, this is a great place to visit. Wonderful photo opportunities as well
