"Palatki Cultural Site" Top 5 Page for this destination Indian Ruins Tip by joiwatani

Indian Ruins, Sedona: 12 reviews and 17 photos

This is another cultural site that is great for archaeologists, historians, rock artists, etc. Again, like any other cultural sites, entrance to this park needs a Red Rock Pass. What that means, is you have to purchase a pass. (This fee is intended to fund the visitor's center, the website they maintain, pay for their people to clean up the area and protect the site, etc.)

When you come visit this national heritage site, make sure to have a lot of time and not rushing to be able to appreciate the rock arts or petroglyphs.

There are cliff dwellings here left by the Sinaguans. There are also several rock arts. The pictographs include bears, rattle snakes, humans, deers, coyotes, etc.

No pets allowed.
There is a visitor's center here and it opens at 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 pm.

Reservations required to visit this area. Make sure to call (928) 282-3854 and/or (928) 282-4119
