This is our second visit to this national monument. It is a great stop but somewhat limited on activities. Basically just a cliff dwelling seen by a short walk. A nice small museum. But we have the senior pass to get in so no cost.

This National Park preserves the history of this ancient civilization of cliff dwellers. The original structures built high into the cliffs are amazing in themselves, but the park also tells the story of the civilization that evolved in the Verde Valley. Well worth the visit.

Visited early May 2017. An easy and short walk from the visitors center on flat paved walk way. Super opportunity to photo ruins. The Park service has done an excellent job of preserving and restoring these ruins. The Park Rangers were friendly, informative and eager...More

Be warned you are in for a long wait if you want to visit the castle. They are doing road work and you have to wait long periods of time to drive down and even longer to get out. This park should have been closed...More

This is a little hidden gem if you love Indian history! The drive to this castle is gorgeous and the park rangers are very nice!

Decided to stop by on a trip to Flagstaff. Easy access to Interstate. Clean park, like new. Cave dwellings impressive but not very much there. You cannot go in , just admire from 70 ft. Below. Plants and site explained everywhere. Informative.

Short walk with some information about the 'castle'. Nothing special, but since I had the annual pas, visited the place. Normal entrance 10$

This is a National Park, so expect to pay if you don't have a pass. That said, it's worth the short trip from the highway and the short walk down the trail. The ruins are well restored and the placards do a good job of...More

A short walk allows you to view this historic site of ancient cliff dwellers. Dogs are allowed on the paved path to the ruins.

How much time should I allot for my trip to Montezuma's Castle? We have a long trip that day and I am curious if it will take more than an hour or two. We only plan on walking the main path, maybe taking a handful of photos, and probably just breezing thru any visitors center/museum.

We were there for about 30 minutes- it's only a 2 minute walk to get there and there are a few trails.
How far is the castle from Sedona?

It depends where you are staying in Sedona and the time of day. Some days traffic will add more time, I think it would usually take about 30-40 minutes to drive the approximate 27 miles. It's a beautiful drive though, so... More
