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.


A short easy path to a petroglyph site. It's one of the most impressive collections of petroglyphs I've ever seen. Only Newspaper Rock in southern Utah compares.

An easy loop trail to some excellent Indian ruins. The trail along the red rock bluff is uneven in spots.

Easy trail to a Indian Rock Art Site. The trail goes to an old homestead; All that is left of it is a fireplace and chimney. Nice, well groomed trail goes down a creek bank to a rock bluff where the rock art is.
