There is no climbing on the actual ruins but the paved path lets you have excellent views of the walls and windows of the cliff dwellings. (Please don't let your children run wild just because the paths are level and wide.) The changing shadows make...More

This was a must-do item on my Husband's list and it did not disappoint. Though just a short walk around it is amazing to see the details and the ingenuity that must've gone into building this. Do this, then go to montezuma well.

Admission is included if you go to the Tuzigoot National Monument. I personally like Montezuma National Monument better. The Rangers are so friendly and helpful. Thank you Ranger Sharp for explaining to us the history. You are amazing.

This is our second visit to this national monument. It is a great stop but somewhat limited on activities. Basically just a cliff dwelling seen by a short walk. A nice small museum. But we have the senior pass to get in so no cost.

This National Park preserves the history of this ancient civilization of cliff dwellers. The original structures built high into the cliffs are amazing in themselves, but the park also tells the story of the civilization that evolved in the Verde Valley. Well worth the visit.

How much time should I allot for my trip to Montezuma's Castle? We have a long trip that day and I am curious if it will take more than an hour or two. We only plan on walking the main path, maybe taking a handful of photos, and probably just breezing thru any visitors center/museum.

We were there for about 30 minutes- it's only a 2 minute walk to get there and there are a few trails.
How far is the castle from Sedona?

It depends where you are staying in Sedona and the time of day. Some days traffic will add more time, I think it would usually take about 30-40 minutes to drive the approximate 27 miles. It's a beautiful drive though, so... More
