Walnut Canyon - Remarkable Formations, Ancient Cliff Dwellings! Come gaze across the curved canyon walls! Among the remarkable geological cliff formations of the canyon itself, the shapes of the former homes of ancient inhabitants of Walnut Canyon are easily evident. On a hike along the Rim or Island Trails you can imagine what life was like along and within Walnut Canyon while visiting actual pueblos and walking in the steps of those who came before us. Hours vary seasonally.

An easy hike! It was a great follow up to Montezuma’s castle as now we got to see inside the dwellings. Lots of stairs, but short and easy!

Walnut Canyon is a great little stop if you are in the area. Canyon and cliff dwellings were neat to see! This hike is more towards easy if you are in shape. recommend for all levels to do though.

I took my 3.5yo and my 11mo (in a pack) and this was a great hike. It’s more of a walk. Most (if not all) is paved and it has rails on a majority of the cliff edges. Some parts of the trail are a little narrow (just FYI). There are stairs, but it’s not too bad. Great views of the canyon and it was awesome to able to explore the ruins. Would definitely go on this hike again.

The trail is nicely constructed with stones stairs, very easy to walk on. Though certain segments require more effort to walk up/down, there are many benches available to sit and rest. There are trees along the trail, so it's cool. The best part is the view of Walnut Monument! You'll love this trail.

Short nature walk on paved loop. Steep stairs coming back up to visitor center. Small-kid friendly trail. Sit inside ruins and cliff dwellings! My older kids enjoyed the educational and cultural aspect. Pay National Park fees $$$ at the gate or use annual pass. Should have taken a picnic and stayed a while.

Cute little trail that anyone can do with great views

Simple hike in the historic site. Interesting ruins. Was a fee for entry. Steep stairs to the "island". but doable by most, even if they have to take their time.

Did this short little hike a few years back when our daughter was at NAU. It's an easy hike, but does have some stairs that need to be climbed when heading back up. Pretty cool cliff dwellings and doesn't take long to do.

Beautiful! Go as fast as you want, great for the whole family.
