Welcome to Walnut Canyon National Monument

Walnut Canyon National Monument offers a look into the past of how Ancestral Puebloan people adapted to the land and the environment. Start here to plan your visit today.

Open daily from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., (except early closure at 1:00 on Thanksgiving, December 25, and January 1), Walnut Canyon National Monument offers trails to explore, accessible viewpoints, a museum, and park film.

Explore and learn about the park's rich history on the Island and Rim Trails. Venture down into the canyon to see Native American cliff dwellings on the (0.90) mile Island Trail (open 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.). Take in sweeping views of the canyon, and explore historic cultural sites along the 0.75 mile Rim Trail (open 9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.). Begin the Rim Trail by 4:30 p.m. to give yourself enough time to complete the trail by 5:00 p.m. when the park closes.

Walnut Canyon National Monument welcomes teachers and students to learn and explore. Get started planning your field trip.
