Cool view at the end. Very easy trail.

While this is a walk, not a hike, the grounds are lovely and the petroglyphs are phenomenal.

Short, easy off trail hike recommended by the National Park Service. You will pick up Martha's Butte fairly quickly in the hike, so it is not difficult to find. Suggest that you go around Martha's Butte for more petroglyphs and views. Note: No shade.

Terrific unmaintained trail to a butte with sweet petroglyphs.

Unmarked trail leading to a butte with many petroglyphs and animals. No shade with views and trail finding is what its all about.

Very disappointed! We drove out to this trail because Montezuma Castle didn't take us as long to explore as he had hoped. We got there at 4:30pm and came to a road block with as sign stating that access is allowed Friday, Saturday and Sunday until 3:00pm and violators are subject to a $200 fine. I'm giving it 2 stars rather than just one because we were able kill an hour just exploring the river's edge near the bridge and it was quite lovely. Would have loved to see the petroglyphs though.

We stop here while driving to Sedona, so we were on a schedule, but found the short side drive well worth the time. There are 3 short hikes at the Center. Beautiful area and interesting Native American history. A couple of longer hikes, one recommended as an overnighter, start very near here for those that have the time.

My mom and I did this trail with Pink Jeep Tours and our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the culture, history, plants, and animals. Easy and fascinating hike. Loved seeing the ruins.
