Was informative in showing history of the ancient people. The sites were signed well and the roads in good shape. Glad I didn't live in that time!

This was a great side trip from Sunset Crater. It has a lot of history and is very well preserved. The large pueblo area has a nice trail map that gives you a lot of information as you walk along the trail. Aside from the large pueblo there are lots of smaller sites you can look at throughout Wupatike area... More

We were in Williams for 2 days and looking for another outdoor excursion after going to the Grand Canyon the first day. We found Wupatki / Sunset Crater national monuments. These are less than an hour drive from Williams, and a great find!! They are on a loop road, and we spent about 4 hours total. Wupatki has amazing Indian... More

The loop road to the site is an easy drive from Flagstaff. The ticket covers two attractions, the pueblos and the volcano.The highlights are well indicated and parking is provided, with easy, short trails leading to the sites. This helps preserve the character and ambiance of the pueblos. A good film is worth watching in the Information Center to get... More

See how the Indians lived and how they were treated by those who felt more entitled to the land. A very interesting chronology of the out migration of a people. Poignant, too.

I am a bit ashamed to admit that I have lived in Arizona for over 45 years and had never previously visited this wonderful national monument. My wife and I visited here on a recent trip to Flagstaff. The ruins and history are fascinating. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire visit. We visited Sunset Crater as they are on the same... More

If you like history then drive there else would be disappointed. Place is isolated. After the stop at the sunset crater it was a decent drive there. Hot in summer.

This monument is worth the time to visit. Start at the Visitor Center where you can learn about the history of the Indian pueblo and the people that lived here. There is also an interesting story of the first park ranger and his wife who actually lived in the pueblo when it opened! The Wupatki pueblo housed multiple families of... More

The best part of this is the drive and the amazing vistas of the painted desert. We stopped at the Wupatki pueblo and walked the trail. We were there mid-week and it was not very busy so you could take your time and look around. We stopped at a couple of the other pueblos, but they were less interesting. There... More
