You get there via graded dirt roads that seem to be well maintained. The "area" is actually in 2 parts. There is a shallow cave up and to the left of the check in building that has many petroglyphs. There usually is a docent there to answer any questions. Back down the trail and to the right is the trail... 更多
Palatki is located west of Sedona off of Dry Creek Road. It takes a good 20 minutes or so to reach the site, however if you are interested in the ancient history of the native people of the red rocks and Verde Valley, this is an excellent place to start. Depending upon your guide at the site, your explanation will... 更多
I didn't know what to expect - sometimes photos don't do something justice. That's the case with the Palatki Ruins. We reserved our hike time early in the morning to avoid the heat. Our guide greeted us, we paid, and off we went. The hike up to the Ruins is just incredible. The towering red rock, the open valley behind... 更多
If you have some time to spare, this is an amazing place to come and see some of the natural history around this area. Short hikes and cool sites.
While it take a bit to get there (couple of miles of unpaved roads), it is worth the trouble. It is run by the Natl. Park service and thus is well maintained. You get an incredible glimpse into the past history of the SW native American culture. The park service guides are knowledgeable and friendly. There is a park fee... 更多
Visited with our two children. The wonderful volunteers were very accommodating at getting us in for a tour. We learned so much from them and got to see the ancient ruins and all of the petroglyphs and pictographs. At the end, our kids were sworn in as junior rangers which was super exciting for them. Thank you!!
A visit to Palatki is a must for anyone interested in American culture. Situated not far from Boynton Canyon it is easy to reach and an easy walking trip. Not too many inclines to navigate and beautiful scenery. Free car park.
Enjoyed a Pink Jeep tour of these ruins. The excursion was very enjoyable overall--we had a beautiful day and lovely views to and from the site. The ruins and tour were interesting, because it was the first time we had seen Native American structural relics of pictographs in situ, but they were not particularly dramatic, well-preserved/unadulterated, or extensive.
You need to drive on a dirt road for 45 minutes (for 10 miles), The road is easy to drive on, 2wd is ok. The place is beautiful in the middle of red rocks. the guide is very knowledgeable. The ruins are untouched and unrestored.
