We elected to do the full guided hike, and the views were spectacular! The initial segment is a paved walkway, where one learns about the original inhabitants and their lifestyle. The second segment is a hike up a fairly rocky, steep path...but the views are worth every step.
I recommend doing the guided tour to get the full effect of this site. You can drive your own vehicle (trucks or suvs) to the first landing, then your tour guide will take over. They say drink lots of water and be prepared for an exertion. We are Texans, so we aren't used to the higher elevations, but we didn't... 更多
This is a very interesting archealogical site. The docents are extremely knowledgeable and happy to share their information. The grounds are well maintained for safety and appearance.

The archeologists aren't sure why there are dwellings at the top of this steep mesa. One theory is that is was a site of astrological significance, as the moon rises between Chimney and Companion rocks every 18 years. Plan to go early in the day and take the guided tour. Our guide passed around native items she, or her grandmother,... 更多
