Explore this fascinating ancient pueblo, located near the San Francisco Peaks, which once housed almost 100 members of the Anasazi and Sinagua tribes.
Excellent scenic drive toward the ruins. We showed up after the visitors center closed, but still enjoyed the half mile walk around the ruins. Magnificent QUIET view of the surrounding areas. Restrooms are located outside the visitors center. The park does close, so check your timeline before going. Well worth the stop!
Very cool and well worth the drive from the freeway. Easy hike from the parking lot.

The ruin preservation at Wupatki National Monument is impressive. I really enjoyed being able to talk about the ruins and explore the culture of the ancient Pueblo Indians who lived here. To imagine life at the time and what it took to support a village of this size was amazing. We took time to visit more than just the ruin site where the visitor center is located and would recommend it to anyone. The ruins are easily accessible and Wupatki National Monument can be combined with Sunset Crater Volcano for a great one-day loop trip out of Flagstaff.
The visitor center was great and had a wonderful variety of books for the readers out there. Lot's of interesting things for kids as well. The kids doing the Junior Ranger Program seemed to be having a fun time learning as well.
This was amazing and should not be missed!
Very pretty drive. The ruins are recreations.
