The ruins here are spread over several miles, with clusters of Pueblos abandoned a long time ago. the Zuni, perhaps Hopi, and Navajo people may have all lived here over the centuries. We may see them as abandoned, yet the native people say that they simply have not returned yet. Worth the driving effort and hiking to see.

Decided to go see this on the way back from Page to Phoenix. Have to go back for a longer trip because there's so much to see that one needs at least 4 hours to see it all! Absolutely stunning views of the Painted Desert, canyons next to the many ruins, and the Lava Fields were other worldly! It was... More

So interested to see how the Indians in this area lived. Good walkways. Don't miss checking out the blow hole! Also interesting to think about the connection between here and the Sunset Crater.

This is a great stop for a few hours, especially if you have a national parks pass. Really lovely drives around the park, and the ruins are fascinating.

The loop out to the Wupatki Ruins Natl Monument picks up as you leave Sunset Crater Natl Mon (about 8 miles ne of Flagstaff). The road out to Wupatki is excellent (about a 25 mi loop), and not heavily traveled. Very serene, quiet area--high desert just a few miles east of the Coconino NF. The old pueblos are about half...

Just a wonderful drive, with views of the Painted Desert, and lots of pullout places to walk in a see various ruins. It's very nice, we have come numerous times (we live in the Valley), and we always have a great time. Picnic places are very peaceful and clean.

A nice place to visit, with a lot of culture to see. It is a wonderful drive to the monument. In addition, you walk a trail to get to the ruins, which are wonderful.

If you like archaeology and ruins and learning about the Anasazi this is a great place. You'll need a car to drive around, and some of the hikes can be tricky because of the lava, and/or mud or snow or wind, but it's worth going. There is a blowhole, and a ball court- which is the northernmost ball court found... More

One of several ruins in Northern AZ. A nice pathway takes you right into the ruins. It's a nice walk with the Painted Desert in the background.
