These are impressive cliff dwellings with good interpretation in the visitor centre and along the path. The path winds through Arizona Sycamores and down to Beaver Creek - a beautiful place just to wander.

Even if you're not into historical ruins, this is a very interesting place to visit. It's not far off the highway in a National Park and is a very well laid out and easy to walk experience.

Montezuma Castle is nothing like other park. It features a lot of native Yavapai. Montezuma Castle National Monument protects a set of well-preserved Ancestral Puebloan cliff dwellings near the town of Camp Verde, Arizona, United States.
