“Great Native American Ruins”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014

A beautiful drive out to the ruins is part of the grandness of this experience. Once there you will find helpful guides to share information about the ruins and its location. We have a nearby vacation rental that is within a mile of this ;location, making access easy. http://www.redrockrealty.net/rsr.html

“Rock Solid, But Far Out!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

This trip is for the hardy traveler who likes long, bumpy, gravel roads that seem to go on and on, forever. The scenic views and the wildlife that can be seen along the way make it all worthwhile, however. And, there are more sites to be seen than at this ruin than can be seen at V-Bar-V, which is much easier to access and, although smaller, is just as spectacular an experience.

“Must see!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

What a wonderful site and great volunteer staff. The site features cave dwellings and many petroglyphs. The volunteers are wonderful and the (very easy) hike is breath-taking. Do note, though, that you have to call in advance to make reservations. Don't travel the Sedona area without seeing this!

“Not to be missed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

Wow!!! My husband and I rented a ATV! What an experience. This is the only way to see Sedona on your own, other that hiking. Highly recommend seeing this part of history! Not to be missed while in Sedona!

“So interesting!”

Self-guided visit but visitor information boards along the way are very enlightening. Found the ruins fascinating. Well worth a visit.
