Plan Your Visit
Make the most of your visit
Spend a few hours and discover the incredible legacy of an ancient people. Whether you visit just Montezuma Castle, or add in a side trip to Montezuma Well, you'll be inspired by the Sinagua culture.
A self-guided, 1/3-mile loop trail leads you past an incredible 5-story cliff dwelling, through a beautiful sycamore grove and along spring-fed Beaver Creek, one of only a few perennial streams in Arizona. At Montezuma Well, another 1/3-mile loop leads you past an amazing oasis, used by the Sinagua people over 600 years ago.
Ranger programs are offered daily (ask a park ranger for details when you arrive), and special events throughout the year. Remember that pets, including dogs, on leashes no longer than 6 feet are welcome on the park's trails. Pet owners must clean up after their animals. So, check out a brochure or the kids' Jr. Ranger book, and prepare for your trip! Oh, and don't forget to check the weather!
