A nice visitor's center and the staff was providing lessons on various native endeavors like making arrow heads and hunting. A nice place for a short hike.
The first thing you see is the steep canyon walls that the Sinagua, people without water, lived in. There are 240 steps leading down to the island. The path goes around the island of land that many of the cliff dwellings are situated in. When we were there the path was being repaired and you had to turn around and... 更多
The "Island" hike is a very cool hike through history. Not truly a hike, but certainly more than a walk. Well worth the short drive, $5 and the exertion to climb the stairs. Hard to capture in photos so you have to see it to appreciate it.
Our family of 2 older adults and 3 20+ young adults visited Walnut Canyon mainly because it was close to our accommodation. It turned out to be an amazing choice. The cliff dwellings are incredible and well preserved considering they are over 900 years old. It was fascinating to imagine how these people lived in this large cliff side community... 更多
Good walk for those fit enough to enjoy. There are well laid out trails however a shortfall in hand rails made some of the steps a tad hair raising. Interesting place to visit.
It was a lot of fun to see cliff dwellings up close. There are quiet a few steps down (and of course back up) but we took it slowly and my husband was able to make the whole hike even with his bad knees. A lot of people passed us speeding up and down the trail but because we were... 更多
We drove Walnut Canyon a few years ago and were blown away by the sheer beauty of the place. Well it hasn't changed even while we have grown older. What a wonderful place to drive. For the drive you have the thrill of driving a windy mountain road and for the passangers you have the heavy WOW factor. At the... 更多
Put your walking shoes or hiking boots on and get going. Yes, the hike includes around 240 steps, but it's worth the effort. We took the climb up 12-15 steps at a time. To be able to see these ruins up close is an amazing experience, one that shouldn't be missed. Bring your water bottle and sunscreen.
The week prior we had visited Wupatki and Montezuma’s Castle and found them both quite interesting. We had heard that the Pueblos at Walnut Canyon were also worth seeing, so on the last leg of our road trip we went 45 minutes out of our way to check them out and were glad we did. The Visitors Centre is at... 更多
This was a great canyon. A lot of Indian history. We were not going to stop but then decided to stop. So glad we did. Was a nice hike with a lot of Indian ruins to see. This is well marked with history signs along the way. Do not miss this if your in Flagstaff.
I must have driven by this hundreds of times in the past 40+ years of driving between New Mexico and Arizona/California. I finally took the time to explore this a year or so ago. It is not phenomenal, like the Grand Canyon, but very compact and well done. You can spend an hour, or half a day, and see pretty... 更多
We popped in to Walnut Canyon and didn't know what to expect. It's a very picturesque canyon with great photo opportunities. There are a couple of walks, one along the top of the canyon and one that is more strenuous into the canyon itself, we didn't do either as we were a little pressed for time. For $5 admission it... 更多
The castle is grand and the well is amazing, but at Walnut Canyon you can get a close look at the ruins which are situated on a cliff. Amazing to see how these amazing people lived and wonder how they got done for food and water.
We stopped in because we love National Parks and Monuments. We received excellent info about the area from the staff. There is a rather strenuous walk to get to the area of real interest for most but that does not take away from this great place. In fact, we stopped back a 2nd time because we encountered a bus load... 更多
