  • We decided to visit at the last moment and were glad we did. The visitor center is small but they hade some unique things to by. No exhibits were open, of course. We went out on the Sandal trail...

  • This out of the way park is really special. We arrived Sunday evening and found a level spot for our van among the tall junipers. Bathrooms were open and clean. Monday morning we drove to the Visitor's Center and walked out to the overlook. The short walk - with the morning light on the distant canyons, was easy, quiet, and visually awesome. Bring binoculars to get a closer view of the ruins. They are very cool. Loved the interpretive signs for native plants along the trail. Met a Ranger who expressed his deep love of this place. Short, but wonderful visit.
  • This park is not open every day and the hours may not correspond to what you think they might, with various jurisdictions for Mountain Standard versus Mountain Daylight... We were unable to go down and hike into the canyon but we were able to enjoy Tsegi Canyon overlook. The view is spectacular and it is a short drive to be able to look over this viewpoint from the highway. It is a long way from most other parks and lodging. If you're planning to go here, it may require prioritization so that you can get there in time on the right day.
