This is a great hike that few people get to experience. The upper dwelling of the Tonto National Monument is only available through the NPS with a ranger-guided tour. Fee is $4 per carload. These tours are only offered from November through April, are offered only four times per week for groups of up to 15 people. The tour requires advance reservations and often fills up weeks in advance. Our guide was a brilliant and extremely knowledgeable anthropologist who provided a wealth of info about the history and culture of the Salado people. You can walk through this 32-room dwelling and see artifacts that are 700 years old.


Great views of Roosevelt Lake and the Mazatzal Mountains are provided with a nearly 360-degree vista. You will love this easy half-day hike if you like beautiful AZ scenery and the study of ancient Indian ruins.
