Montezuma’s castle is inside a National Park. If you have a National patk pass it’s free to enter. We walked the paths and got a brief overview from a park ranger on the history of the castle. It was built around 1100 BC by the...More

This was a really nice drive. Beware though that they close earlier than we realized (I believe they closed at 5) Make sure you do your research and check their hours.

Montezuma Castle is a neat place to visit with interesting history. The surrounding area is shaded by huge trees, including Arizona Sycamore and Juniper. There are picnic tables available. The volunteer ranger was more than helpful and very knowledgeable. It is very peaceful. The paved...More

Hadn't been here since i was a kid. The improvements they have made, make it much easier to get to the site. It is a paved trail all the way.

This is a great place to visit with family. It is a short walk to the site, but worth the time to sit and view.

We took our teenage grandsons to this historic cliff dwelling near Cape Verde az. Although one of Arizonas smaller pueblos, they were still impressed. We also saw a red squirrel and a tiny snake whilst walking around the area.

This is one of the smaller pueblos in Arizona built high up into a hill. About 35 Sinagua Indian people could live there at one time. You get there by going from the parking lot through the small gift shop with a very small exhibit...More

I should clarify that the trail at Montezuma's Well is not as short. It is pretty, but you need to walk quite a bit more. The one at the Castle is much shorter and cooler.
