A great, historcial monument of native American life. In the walls of the canyon, the people created a city of dwellings. So close to Flagstaff, I recommend a visit. 2 hours will be enough time for a quick visit, or put aside 4 hours to take it all in.

Stopped in Flagstaff on the way home from the Grand Canyon specifically to spend some time at Walnut Canyon. What an experience. Aside from the steps which everyone has mentioned, the hike itself was easy and wonderful. To be able to stand inside some of these dwellings was so interesting. Don't miss this while in Flagstaff...

Visited this site early May 2017. This site is a real gem. Very nice visitors center with glass enclosed expansive views of the canyon and ruins.

We spent the day hiking, fording freezing streams and enjoying the amazing scenery. As it was a Sunday and Mothers Day to boot, some of the more popular areas were somewhat crowded, but it was still worth it. Did some minor rock climbing, with a four year old, had a blast. Definitely worth the $20.00 per car admission fee.

It is a great place to get an insight into how the Sinagua people lived a thousand years ago. The cliff dwellings are interesting, and the signage is very informative.

This was a great place to spend a couple hours walking along the cliff. Interesting reading about the cliff dwellers. Be prepared to climb a lot of stairs but there are benches along the way if you need a break.

Thank pamhugh
