We arrived in Flagstaff in the mid-afternoon and after getting checked in to our motel and having a bite to eat, we decided to go see Wupatki. We put it in our Garmin and headed north. When we arrived at the place where the Garmin...More

We combined this with Sunset Crater and it was a nice afternoon drive. Loved seeing all the Pueblo's and can not believe what good shape they were in. Most were just a short walk from the road and were worth seeing.

We drove the loop thru this monument, stopping at the visitors center and another ruin. Good access to the ruins. Unbelievable that they still exist. Interesting info about those who built them and the early National Park service employees and neighboring Navajos who kept looters...More

This is a terrific place to visit during Fall, Winter or Spring (October through mid-May), otherwise it is too hot once the temperature gets above 90 degrees. Arizona has several pueblo ruins like these and they are all fascinating. Make sure to carve out about...More

Loved this site. Short and easy trail to see ruins. Our favorite part was learning about the blow hole!

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!

It is good to allow at least 1 hour to walk down and around then hike back up all of those stairs. If you bring a picnic lunch then right outside is an area of picnic tables!! The visitors center itself could take up more of... More
