When traveling north from Phoenix, AZ, don't forget to turn off I 17 to visit this National Monument. Nothing big, you know, but interesting. You see cliff dwellings of the Sinagua culture, and a small explanatory exhibition in the visitor center. The hike with more...More

The ruins take you back to a place in time where people lived in the rock walls and farmed and hunted in the valley below. Wonderfully maintained and documented.

Interesting "castle" - which is actually a home built by the Native Americans - in a hill. Excellent architecture and is good for a quick visit en-route to the other connecting parks - e,g. Tuzigoot, and Montezuma's Well.

We were told about this while we were staying in Sedona, that it would be on our way to Phoenix, and that we should stop and visit. This was good advice. The site is very well set up and informative. The guides are excellent and...More

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.

We traveled from Prescott and did not stop in Jerome, but we did the castle and the well in about 2-2.5 hours. And you cannot go up into the castle. Walking tours stopped when geologists deemed it unsafe.
