Flagstaff Area National Monuments

Flagstaff Area National Monuments Wupatki, Sunset Crater Volcano and Walnut Canyon National Monuments protect more than 40,000 acres and 3,000 archaeological sites near Flagstaff Arizona. There is a one hour scenic loop road that winds through Sunset Crater Volcano and Wupatki National Monuments.

Wupatki is one of the warmest and driest places on the Colorado Plateau. Wupatki was home to numerous groups of people over thousands of years. Trade items from the Pacific to the Gulf of Mexico have been discovered here. There are six prehistoric pueblos here that are open to the public year round. Take a self-guided tour of the largest, Wupatki Pueblo, located behind the visitor center. All trails in the monument are under one mile.

Sunset Crater Volcano erupted more than 900 years ago changing the landscape and the lives of the people, plants and animals forever. You can hike a trail through the lava flow or enjoy a view from the Cinder Hills Overlook. Come view the night skies at one of the monthly star parties in the summer.

Walnut Canyon is having a Centennial Celebration in 2015. Come join us for a full year of guided tours and activities. Allow 2 hours to see the visitor center and museum, hike down to the cliff dwellings and walk the Rim Trail. The Island Trail goes into the canyon and provides access to 25 cliff dwelling rooms. It is one of the best ways to enjoy the park but the hike back to the top is strenuous.
