We stopped here on the way from Phoenix to Tuscon - a fascinating site with well-preserved ruins. We learned a lot. (Visited in April 2007)

Very interesting to lean how the people of that time lived and dug their canals by hand. The video presentation was very informative and gave insight into their way of life.

Great stop for a national monument that focuses on the history and culture of the Indians. A well preserved ruin, though birds seem to be destroying it. You can go through the museum and ruin in under an hour.

A great example of a well preserved set of ruins in the region. The visitor center is very informative and air conditioned. Make sure you bring lots of water even for this short walk.

The wife and I stopped here on our way from Tucson to Phoenix. This is a very interesting place to visit. The overall area makes it very easy to explore in a reasonable amount of time.

The site gives a interesting look at how people use to live in the southwest US. Quick thing to stop in and look at real fast.

I suggest contacting the the monument site. I would tend to think not as some areas are rather fragile and are roped off.
