This is a drive yourself trip. Bring your camera and take every turnoff available on the road to look at the different Pueblos and Sunset Crater. Beware of heat! Mid 80's at Sunset Crater and then down to the desert floor for Wupatki and other...More

This is a fairly small park. There are a few other ruins you can hike to but most people take the very easy hike to the Wupatki ruins. The trail (maybe a 1/2 mile total) loops around the ruins so you can get an up...More

We took the young grandkids (7 and 8) and though it was close to 100 degrees, we all enjoyed it. The loop road that goes to Sunset Crater Nat'l Monument is a varied and beautiful drive.

If you are in the Flagstaff area, make sure you visit the Wupatki Indian ruins and monument. They show the hallowed grounds of where this once famous Indian tribe once flourished in this remote part of Arizona.

Excellent and easy park to visit. The trails are short and easy to walk. The ruins are not very big but interesting to see.

There’s a nice loop road that winds through sunset crater and these ruins. The ruins are picturesque and one a flat plain. Unique to the American Southwest and a must see for out of town visitors.

Yes and no. The big cacti don’t grow above certain elevations. You will find the prickly pear cacti though. The bigger plants are found closer to Phoenix.
