A Mysterious Woodland Trail In Arizona Will Take You To The Original Sinagua Ruins
Arizona has no shortage of ancient ruins to visit, but some don’t get nearly the amount of recognition they deserve. The Honanki Heritage Site, located in the Sedona area, features an ancient cliff dwelling once home to the 15th-century Sinagua people. All it takes to see the magnificent structure for yourself is an easy, 0.6-mile hike through a whimsical woodland forest – so, what are you waiting for?
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
Please note: while the hiking trail that takes you to the Honanki Heritage Site is easy, the dirt road leading to it gets very rough in the last 2.5 miles. We recommend visiting in an SUV, Jeep, truck, or other high-clearance vehicle.
