Canyon overlook on Rim Trail

Stroll along the canyon rim through a mixed juniper and pinion pine forest. Two canyon overlooks provide scenic views of the canyon and cliff dwellings below. Explore a partially rebuilt pithouse and pueblo set back from the canyon rim. On a summers day, visit the demonstration garden that features traditional crops grown by the Sinagua.

Do your part to protect the park by staying on the established trails, not climbing or leaning on dwelling walls, and by not removing or disturbing park features.

Entry to the Rim Trail closes daily at 4:30 p.m. This ensures that visitors have ample time to explore the trail and to depart before the park closes at 5:00 p.m.
