Overview

This was a thriving community as illustrated by its pottery, arrowheads and other household artifacts. A self-guiding trail leads through the adjacent 800-year-old Tusayan Ruin. Ranger-led ruin tours are offered daily. Educational materials about the park and region are sold in the bookstore.

Short Walk: Steps from parking lot.

Family Friendly: Quick access, easy trail, interesting history, free admission.
