  • This was one of the best things we did at the National Park. It is a 2 mile round trip hike out to a small house made with petrified wood. The trail is an old asphalt road so it is an easy walk...

  • Agate House isn't the most dramatic prehistoric Indigenous site... If you're going to Wupatki, Walnut Canyon, Montezuma Castle, and Tuzigoot National Monuments you are going to get a much more...

  • Very nice and short hike Very quiet. We only saw 3 other people on this hike. DO NOT PICK UP LOOSE PETRIFIED WOOD!
  • Pretty neat hike to an old house made out of Petrified Wood! I can't believe they use to live in places like this but they did. The trail from the parking lot to the house is well done. Portion of it was the old road that you could drive to but now a walking path. The rest is semi asphalt and hard packed dirt/gravel and easy to walk as well. There are many other Petrified Trees laying around in the area for you to see also. Some pretty big ones and lots of pieces throughout the walk. Also look for the animal dwellings! Not sure what they are but pretty cool to see once you start to notice them. Have a wonderful time and stay cool and hydrated! It can get quite warm in a hurry!
