Easy side trip travelling to Sedona. Can't go into the monument itself for preservation reasons but it is a wonderful sight to see up on the side of a cliff.

This is a smaller park. There is one path that is about a half mile round trip hike. Very flat and 100% accessible. Visitor's Center did a good job showing what village life would have been like. There was a gentleman there playing traditional Native...More

Saw many places on our National Park tour. Many old Pueblo or cave wall sites. This was one of the best and well preserved. Rangers were well informed and answered questions.

We stopped here on our way to Sedona from Phoenix. It is on the way, but if you aren't looking for the sign, it's easy to miss. It's definitely a unique structure, and while going inside it prohibited, it is a neat and unusual place...More

It was cool to see, but its high up and everyone stands in the same spot. The model of the castle was better than the actual monument.

I should clarify that the trail at Montezuma's Well is not as short. It is pretty, but you need to walk quite a bit more. The one at the Castle is much shorter and cooler.
