The previous press release concerning partial trail closures has been rescinded. All Trails are open to the public.

Walnut Canyon National Monument was established by proclamation of President Woodrow Wilson on November 30, 1915, to preserve the ancient cliff dwellings. The Island Trail descends 185 feet (about halfway into the canyon), via 240 steps; it passes 25 cliff dwelling rooms offering glimpses of life at Walnut Canyon over 900 years ago.

The entrance fee is $5 per adult, 16 and over. Children 15 and under are free. America the Beautiful, Access, Senior, and Flagstaff Area Passes are accepted and sold. Walnut Canyon National Monument is located 7.5 miles east of downtown Flagstaff via I-40 and can be contacted at (928)526-3367 and on the web at

The National Park Service cares for special places saved by the American people so that all may experience our heritage.
