  • Very nice! Friendly staff, informative displays, and a place where people have been coming and stopping for over 400 years. You can take a half mile easy walk to the pool and to see all the signatures in the rock, or do the whole 2 mile loop to see the ruins of a Zuni ancestral pueblo from around 1250-1400 AD on the top. Highly recommended.
  • One of the most underrated national monuments in the entire United States. A beautiful natural landscape in its own right with towering sandstone cliffs, these particular cliffs host many-hundred-years-old Spanish inscriptions, along with even older petroglyphs. Well worth the drive to get there.
  • Nice place to stop and walk. Paved trail you can see a lot with a 1/2 mile walk. Some of the longer upper trail was closed due to weather this visit the best I can remember it was very nice too if your able to walk on steeper surfaces.
  • El Morro National Monument is a wonderful place and an amazing walk through time. Seeing the thousands of years of people that have passed by this one place simply because of the presence of water in a dry land really brings to perspective the short time we have on this world. The trail is an easy walk and everything is wonderfully maintained. So many pictures to be taken!!!
  • El Morrow is truley breath taking. It is an absolute must to visit if you are in the area. I just cant get over the fact that its free! If you like walking stairs the top is just majestic. The staff are very helpfull and polite. Now that i know its there i will be returning! Thank you all at El Morrow
