This little gem sits off the highway between Phoenix and Flagstaff. It was $10 per person and had ample parking on a Saturday afternoon in late March. We are awed by history, so this was a must see and well worth it, to us. It...More

Although historically this place is interesting it is probably not worth to spend your money and time to see, especially considering how many more things around that area are worth seeing. Take a look on the picture and that is basically it, there is nothing...More

We stopped by on our way to Flagstaff. It is near the freeway. I didn't expect the cliff dwelling to be as big as it is. The trail leading to it is easy to navigate, but also is surrounded by nature. We saw several different...More

Really cool place to visit!! We didn’t have much time but since we were in the area thought we would make a quick stop. this was totally worth it. Very cool to see. Short shady hike on a paved trail.

There was quite a lot of information here about these cliff dwellings and what is known was well presented. There was a local playing the traditional flute too, which we could hear as we walked the loop and that added to the experience. The kids...More

Let me tell you this site is spectacular. To see the dwellings in the cliff and observe the valley the early Americans lived in is spectacular. The entrance fee covers the nearby tuzigoot monument as well. Please check it out and make sure you do...More

I have stopped several times and always intrigued by Motezuma. Nice walk, not too long but bring water because there is limited shade depending on what time you visit.

We enjoyed seeing the ancient dwellings and the park rangers were very knowledgeable about the place. Get there early to avoid crowds. The path is paved so there is easy access for all.

This was a cool must see for any history buff or even children learning. Entry was a bit high, get the annual park pass and it’s included.

I spent between 1-2 hours there (I also like the indoor exhibits). We did not have chance to visit Tuzigoot.

No. There is a gently slipping walkway that would be appropriate for a walker though. The "ruins" are not extensive and the path is quite short.
