All reviews island trail the cliff cave dwellings take your time visitor center mesa verde national monument bring water native americans worth the effort great hike mile loop short hike indian ruins flagstaff area easy hike beautiful scenery
We were on a Road Scholar's tour of the native america historical sites. Walnut Canyon is a beautiful venue with a walk-able trail getting you excellent views of the historical native american homes in the cliffs.
I make my living taking photos of the national parks and famous landscapes. My work is sold on Getty Images and I have some of my work displayed in galleries in Sedona and Jerome.

So glad we took the time to visit and walk down along the Island Trail - a unique and delightful experience! Fascinating and scenic. We were pressed for time so just did the Island Trail and then took off for Wupatki National Monument. You could...More
Due to knee issues, I couldn't do the hike down the stairs to see the ancient cliff dwellings up close. So we took the much easier hike on a paved path that winds along the rim of the canyon. Amazing history here, as well as...More
Don't miss this if you are in the area, this was a gorgeous canyon with ruins on cliffs. There were lots of stairs so be prepared for a nice hike but on paved trails, it was very well worth the trip and the cost of...More
We had no idea what to expect and this was probably the most breath taking, historical place we visited on our trip. We hiked down to the bottom where you could see how people lived in the 1200s. 23 floors down and up, so have...More
Having been to Mesa Verde in the 4-corners area and then Montezuma's Castle we found this monument very accessible and interesting after an impromptu stop while travelling I-40 from Flagstaff to Winslow. Both trails were interesting and given the moderate temps in November, the steps...More

II would definitely not take them on the islands trail as it is a 300 stair path to the cliff dwellings which seems unsafe to me. I did not see any children younger than about 10 or 12 when I went. Of course the visitor center was safe and nice but the exhibits didn’t appear to really target young children. The wupatki NM just north of flagstaff might be a better choice no cliffs easy paths fun “blowhole” with air coming out of the ground at one site.
