Wilderness Vagabond Trip Reports
A steep path descends down into Walnut Canyon and passes by 20 cliff dwelling homes that once were a hub of human activity nearly 700 years ago. The protected home site is built into a ledge of a 600 foot tall limestone cliff. Archeologists still search through the dust, looking for clues that may shed light as to what happened 500 years ago. It remains a partial mystery as to why the Sinagua Indian Tribe abandoned their well constructed dwellings.
