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.
Loved this little hike! I wasn't expecting a trail when I went here. Thought I'd just walk up, see the well, and leave. So this was a pleasant surprise! Very beautiful short trail that takes you into the well and down to the neighboring waterway. The signs along the way were very thoughtful. Beware, very steep climbs.

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.

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.
