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.

Nice little trail that gives way to the larger trail of Campbell Mesa Loop. Its a nice way to get out for your house if you live near by but I wouldn't go out of my way to hike/bike this one.

Amazing! Great views of cliff dwellings and lots of cool desert fauna. You learn a lot about the Sinagua and their way of life. There are lots of stairs to climb but plenty of spots to pause and take breaks. Definitely worth the time.

Easy, paved trail with great views of the canyon if you don't want to climb down the stairs of the Island Trail.

Not dog friendly. Signs all over saying NO DOGS. Waste of time.

Great hike! Lots of steps but we just took it slow and in chunks on the way back up. We are not in the best shape and it was a very enjoyable hike! The ruins were pretty amazing, great views, and lots of pretty birds.

This was a fantastic trip! The scenery was beautiful and there are plenty of spots to rest on the way back up the stairs if you have/are older people. The ruins are amazing and you can see other ruins along the canyon. Very recommended.

Simply fascinating! See how many other dwellings you can find on the other canyon walls.
