Montezuma Castle National Monument one of the best preserved cliff dwellings in North America. This 20 room high-rise apartment, nestled into a towering limestone cliff, tells a story of ingenuity, survival and ultimately, prosperity in an unforgiving desert landscape. Visitors can marvel at this enduring legacy of the Sinagua culture and reveal a people surprisingly similar to ourselves. Approximately 350,000 people a year gaze through the the windows of the past during a visit to Montezuma Castle. Even 600 years after their departure, the legacy of the Sinagua people continues to inspire the imaginations of this and future generations.

Not much of a hike. Its a quick stop to somewhere else.
gorgeous! worth the $5 per person entry fee. brought our dog, nice paved trail, small hike, very easy. two thumbs up!
Only open 8 to 5. Will try to see it some other time.
We listened to an interpretive talk, which have us some great perspective on this amazing site. Great place to take kids-we spent about an hour there.
Easy to get to and a very short walk from the visitor center. Can see it in short time. Well worth the stop!!!
You can't get near the ruins but its a great place to hike
Fascinating piece of Native American history from before the 1400s in the middle of the Arizona desert. The cliff dwellings were amazing to see from the walkway, which was a short walk from the visitor center. The temperature was high so be sure to hydrate.
It was cool, but it wasn't really worth the $10 per person unless you're interested in the history and archeological knowledge.
Worth the stop, easy walk to the ruins and down to Beaver Creek. Spent about a hour there with the family. Kids liked it.
Fascinating with very easy walk/stroll. Helpful ranger ax. Accessible for all ages and well written history in museum helps to understand just how old and well preserved this place is. The oldest man made structure we have ever seen in America
