It is a great place to get an insight into how the Sinagua people lived a thousand years ago. The cliff dwellings are interesting, and the signage is very informative.

This was a great place to spend a couple hours walking along the cliff. Interesting reading about the cliff dwellers. Be prepared to climb a lot of stairs but there are benches along the way if you need a break.

Wondering what can be seen from the visitors center. One of our party would not be able to hike. Is it worth the trip to just visit the visitors center?

certainly worth viewing even from the top. there are benches right at the top outside that one can sit and enjoy the view. bring binoculars and you could easily see some of the caves across the way.
Can you bring a small dog?

I believe animals were prohibited from the main part of the Canyon -- the Island Trail. Not sure they were even allowed around the rim.
how long is the drive from downtown Flagstaff to Walnut canyon Nat. Monument?
