Site Summary: Walnut Canyon National Monument showcases an entire Sinaguan community. The village consisted of both clusters of cliff dwellings and surface structures. Two short hikes provide access to the cliff dwellings and surface rooms.
Small, excellent museum with artifact displays, dioramas and interpretive programs concerning pre-Hispanic life in the canyon.
