Very helpful staff in terrific visitor center, with an adjoining, well-curated site that balances visitor interaction with site preservation. Not overcrowded in May and several other pueblo ruins sites are accessible throughout the park with short scenic hikes. Loved it.

This was a stop worth the detour. Even our teenage kids felt inspired and interested. The Visitor Center is well organized and has nice artifacts. Interactive games involved the kids and helped us learn more about the history and function of the settlement.

Visited this site early May 2017. The visitors center is loaded with information and cases of pottery and period artifacts. The walk to the ruins is easy and paved. The well preserved ruins are impressive. There are two round arenas/ball courts still in good repair...More

Wupatki is easy to get to, although in a remote area outside of Flagstaff. The walk around the ruins is easy to do and does not involve long distances. The ruins are easy to view and you can even walk around inside the structures. Very...More

Interesting place for a quick visit. The trails are mostly flat and don't provide much of a challenge. There are several different ruins, each of which have a couple of unique features. That said, you could probably get all the views and info you want...More

Here we go again. If you are thinking of visiting this National Monument, there is one VERY BIG IF when debating whether-or-not you want to get involved in this approximately 35-mile long, two hour drive IF you do it right. The BIG IF is this...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Have limited time here but would like to stop. My 10 year old and I will be leaving Sedona on an April morning, stopping at Walnut Canyon to do the Island Trail, and then stopping at Wupatki before heading to the East entrance of the Grand Canyon where we will stay for 2 nights. Plan to drive past Sunset Crater without stopping as I've explored it before. Wondering if you drive from pueblo to pueblo or if you must go on foot between them. Also, since we are limited on time which ones should we focus on since we may not have time for all of them - not sure how many there are. Thanks for the advice!
