In Walnut Canyon, visitors can hike back in time nearly 700 years. Now that's a workout! Originating at the visitors center, a rugged three-quarter-mile off-trail hike leads to cliff dwellings that stand unspoiled in the cover of the beautiful canyon walls. The strong of heart can hike deeper into the canyon on Island Trail, a breathtaking 85-foot descent into 25 rooms where American Indians once lived in the shadow of the cliffs. Bring your most reliable shoes and your spirit of adventure.
Located north of Flagstaff near Wupatki National Monument, this volcano last erupted in 1065, scattering ash and black cinder for miles around the area.

Climb a nearby cinder cone on the Lennox Crater Trail and enjoy the astounding views.
