GPS is frequently unreliable in rural Arizona. Many devices direct visitors to our administrative offices or to rough, dirt roads through the forest. If you are not in a high clearance, four-wheel-drive vehicle, you should avoid any unfamiliar roads that are not paved. The Wupatki Visitor Center is located at 25137 N. Wupatki Loop Road, Flagstaff AZ, 86004.
These maps may help you find your way to and through the monument.
Commercial airports serve Phoenix, Las Vegas, Flagstaff, and Tusayan.
