Download full itinerary.


The ancient Sinagua culture, ancestral to the Hopi of Second Mesa, left their picturesque ruins scattered across the landscape east of Flagstaff. Their name comes from the earliest Spanish name for San Francisco Peaks, which they called Sierra Sinagua, meaning waterless peaks. We will visit ruin sites at Walnut Canyon National Monument and Wupatki National Monument, along with visiting the recent volcano of Sunset Crater, which erupted in 1066 A.D. and played a key role in the history of the Sinagua people. We will also visit a small unexcavated site along the way. Many short walks on mostly paved walkways. Activity Rating: 2-3.
