We stopped here on a drive from Flagstaff to the UT parks and were so glad that we did. This is a fascinating monument. The main area is a short walk from the visitor center and was a wonderful self-guided tour. We really enjoyed our...More
We had already exhausted ourselves at Sunset Crater, but drove through Wupatki and stopped to look at a couple of the ruins. Bring water. There's a lot of uphill walking at the Wupatki Pueblo, at the ranger station. You can borrow a free trail guide...More
We went to Wupatki on a day trip from Flagstaff. To get there, take US Hwy 89 north from Flagstaff. There is a loop road, with the south entrance going by Sunset Crater, winding around near the Painted Desert, and passing through several Anasazi sites....More
Definitely worth the drive to visit Wupatki national monument. Beautiful drive and several different ruins to explore, many you can explore up close. Not wheelchair accessible as you have slight climbs to gain access.
A short drive from downtown Flagstaff and well worth the trip, whether you're staying in Flagstaff or en route to or from the Grand Canyon. It's a jewel box of a site-- well-preserved and meticulously landscaped: the signage, the paths, and even the bannisters along...More
Today, since we were passing right by the road to Wupatki, we couldn’t miss it. (well we could, but this makes a better story). It’s 15 or so miles off the main road. At the NM there’s a nice little Visitor Center. One of the...More
The amazement starts at the visitors center where you can learn a huge amount of information and see it and experience it for yourself. The many structures; amphitheater,blow hole, Mayan ball court, multi`level dwellings are all unique.
It’s great to stop at the Visitor’s Center first. There are excellent interpretive displays that were redone just a couple of years ago. The information will help you learn about the area and the people who lived there at... More
It’s great to stop at the Visitor’s Center first. There are excellent interpretive displays that were redone just a couple of years ago. The information will help you learn about the area and the people who lived there at the time these structures were built, as well as the history of the National monument. The main ruins are accessed through the Visitor’s Center. There are printed trail guides for a self guided experience. There are several sites to visit in the monument but my personal favorite is Wukoki. It has not been restored but you can still walk right up to it, around it and in some of the rooms. It does not get as many visitors. The most beautiful feature is a “patio” of stone with a spectacular view of the San Francisco Peaks. It is quite magical when you are there alone in the early morning or late afternoon. When there is a breeze, I almost feel like I can hear the whispers of the ancient ones, and I am not a very mystical person.
