Groups who are short on time or who wish to view the site at their own pace may elect to take a self-guided tour of the site. While no reservations are required to take a self-guided tour of the site, we do ask that you call in advance to inform us of your visit and that you stop in the visitor center upon your arrival to pay your fee or present us with your fee waiver.
There are a couple of self guided activities available. Follow the link above for more information. You may also download a site map.
