Walnut Canyon National Monument, Sedona: 1 reviews and 0 photos
There are about 80 cliff dwellings at the Walnut Canyon National Monument. These are dwellings of the Sinaguans who built it about 1,000 years ago. These are very fragile and has to be on the watchful care of the National Park Services.
If you are a naturalist, then this is your place! There is a Discovery Park here which you can get binoculars and magnifying lens. They also have field guides and sketching materials to help you with your mini exploration! There are also discovery packs that the visitor center distributes. You can borrow one at the visitor center, then return it (at any of the 3 monument visitor centers) at the end of your visit. The Field Journals yours to keep. There is no charge.
Discovery Packs are for use in all 3 Flagstaff Area National Monuments (Walnut Canyon, Sunset Crater Volcano, and Wupatki)
There is no camping in the monument.
The canyons are very narrow and deep but it has held these dwellings for thousands of years!
