They warn you that it is like climbing an 18- story building, so be prepared. There are steps and inclines, but also shaded rest areas with benches. The view from the top of the Mesa is amazing! So far to look - and so little...More

We enjoyed visiting this National Monument. It is a bit off the beaten path of I40 but was worth a stop for us as we knew one of the Rangers. We had a lovely picnic in the native garden and enjoyed watching the flint knapping...More
