Make the most of your visit Spend a few hours and discover the incredible legacy of an ancient people. Montezuma Castle National Monument. A self-guided, 1/3-mile loop trail leads you past an incredible 5-story cliff dwelling, through a beautiful sycamore grove and along spring-fed Beaver Creek, one of only a few perennial streams in Arizona. Ranger programs are offered daily (ask a park ranger for details when you arrive). Dogs, on leashes no longer than 6 feet are welcome on the park's trails. Pet owners must clean up after their animals.

Definitely not a hike. A little pricey too for only the one view, but I am glad we went.

Interesting history but I would call it a nature walk n I hate when u can't leave the trail.

Small hike but well worth it make sure you go down to the bottom

Interesting for history, but not much for the money.

very fascinating site, paved trail, more of a walk than a hike.

Perfect little walk with lots of interesting markets along the way.

I found this to be pretty interesting! You can still see the cave dwellings and the well is a lot bigger than I thought it would be. Pretty interesting facts written up in top that will have ya scratching ur head.

A very pleasant place! We drop by once a year on "Free NP Entrance Day". I usually take my dog. There is a great little museum and the trail follows Beaver Creek. There is plenty of shade and benches to sit upon. Great for kids and disabled folks!

It was an easy hike and a great place for the family. Lots of birds, geological features, and historical sites. Great homeschool trip.

I walked in with my husband, son, and dog. It is nice and easy, can be done in sandals. Nice views, good information on vegetation and history of the area.

Fun little hike. Unique landform. Huge sycamore trees. Interesting history and friendly staff.

Very interesting place. You'll hike a small hill (on a sidewalk) to a hole with water about 50' below the top. Several viewpoints around the top. On the return trip, there is a series of steps down to where water is released out of the well. Worth the trip.

Montezuma Well is a short and pretty loop trail. The "well" is a limestone sinkhole that was used for centuries as a natural irrigation cistern by the Yavapai. The trail is paved and well-maintained. Be sure to take the short detour to the spring at the base of the outer section of the sinkhole.

A nice little hike to get out of the car for bit. Educational panels all around the trail and I actually learned something.
