As of November 15, 2017 there are no scheduled tours for the winter season. Guided tours through the Gila Cliff Dwellings may be possible upon request, depending on staff availability.

Please note that the tour begins at the cliff dwellings, approximately one-half mile from the Gila Cliff Dwellings trailhead. Give yourself time to hike up the cliff and be at the program on time.

Other tours, programs, and special events may be offered depending upon staff availability. Check the website calendar, visit the official Facebook page and calendar, or call the Gila Visitor Center at 575-536-9461 for the latest information.
