  • The road into the site is dirt and rugged. Best if you had a jeep type vehicle or higher sitting vehicle. It is only about 8 miles but took about 40 minutes in a Corolla. We are 2 parents in ours 50's...  more »
  • We took our own Jeep on the rough ride to the ruins. They honored the National Park Senior pass. Great ruins and nice one mile walk. I would not consider it a hike. Great place to visit.  more »
  • These ruins are very well preserved. There are petroglyphs and wall art to see. We took a Pink Jeep Tour to these ruins.  more »

  • Access to the cliff dwellings is only open until 3pm! Keep that in mind if you plan to go. The forest road leading here is a pretty rough dirt road in several places, but can be navigated by regular passenger cars. It just won't be very good for your car. Several alternatives exist: Pink Jeep Tours which also seem to maintain/operate this site or rent from any of the "drive yourself" off road rental places around Sedona. We usually stop here with a rented Barlow's Jeep on the way to the Outlaw Trail loop. The ruins themselves are rather minimalistic and I always admire how the Pink Jeep guides can spin that into an hour long tour with stories. Takes a bit of knowledge. One of the high points for me is that this is still a freely accessible site, no guides required and instead relying on people to realize they are walking on ancient land. A very different experience from places like Montezuma Castle and something you would have to hike to in many other cases.
  • Throughly enjoyed our visit to the ruins. The staff were very nice and the guides made the trip an educational experience. The hike was very short... maybe a half mile from the parking area. I recommend sneakers.
  • This hike is family friendly and much better than the Palatki Site. This place gives you free roam while the other place gives you a guided tour and treats you like a little kid all while their knowledge is text book. They didn't even know of 4 of the ruins I've found in the area. Go here and save your patience if your experienced in hiking in this area and have knowledge of dwellings.
  • We were on a Jeep tour to see this heritage site. The tour guide point out many things at the site we would have missed. It was a great way to spend the afternoon.
  • Well preserved, amazing to see. Closes at 3pm sharp which they do not tell you if you take one of the tours from town.
