We took our teenage grandsons to this historic cliff dwelling near Cape Verde az. Although one of Arizonas smaller pueblos, they were still impressed. We also saw a red squirrel and a tiny snake whilst walking around the area.

This is one of the smaller pueblos in Arizona built high up into a hill. About 35 Sinagua Indian people could live there at one time. You get there by going from the parking lot through the small gift shop with a very small exhibit...More

The cliff dwellings here are high on the rock face so you look up at them. There is a short pleasant path by them. Someone was playing the Native American flute while we were there which augmented the experience nicely

This was our second stop on day one of our trip. It was also the first cliff dwelling we saw and we were quite impressed. We thought it was a little expensive, but still nice little stop along the way.

I was especially pleased at how my kids (9 & 6) were enthralled at all the descriptions of life at Montezuma's Castle. They loved all the little tidbits they learned and chattered about it all day.

It was a great walking trail outside building where you can see the cliff dwellings. They also had historical information as well as flora of the region. The rangers were informative

This is a must stop national monument. Small and easy to do, just off the Interstate. Wonderful cliff dwellings without all of the crowds. Use your National Parks Pass for free entrance,

After an overnight stay at a local campground, we drove less than 5 miles and toured the grounds of this amazing historical site. Well worth any price to pay.

This incredible cliff dwelling inhabited by Native American Sinagua people between 1100 and 1425 is stunning and spectacular. How could children and adults safely make their way up the sheer rock face to this 5 story dwelling high above the ground? Where did they cook?...More

I spent between 1-2 hours there (I also like the indoor exhibits). We did not have chance to visit Tuzigoot.

No. There is a gently slipping walkway that would be appropriate for a walker though. The "ruins" are not extensive and the path is quite short.
