Montezuma National Monuments
0 mi 1 km of trail — 2 Featured Runs
Montezuma Castle National Monument is one of the best-preserved cliff dwellings in North America. Nestled in an impressive limestone cliff, this 20-room cliff dwelling tells a story of survival, ingenuity, and ultimately, prosperity in an unforgiving desert landscape. A short trip eleven miles northeast of these cliff dwellings, you can explore the stunning architecture and ruins of Montezuma Well where over 1.5 million gallons of water flow into the well daily. Located further to the north, Tuzigoot National Monument is the site of an ancient pueblo atop a desert hilltop, a remnant of the history and culture of the Sinagua people. During a visit to the park, gaze through the windows of the past and explore the legacy of the Sinagua which continues to inspire the imaginations of visitors today.
