Highlight: Montezuma Canyon
Montezuma Creek Road is a scenic canyon drive back in time to when early Native Americans inhabited the area and built their homes into the cliffs. There are many cliff dwelling sites that you can walk right up too. The most interesting and family-friendly site is "Three Kivas Pueblo," a reconstructed kiva that you can walk on and even experience climbing an old latter down into the dwelling. The stone, mud, and wood construction offers a glimpse into what life was like 1,000 years ago. As you travel the route, keep an eye out for several more old dwellings and petroglyphs, which all over the region. This road makes for a mild yet interesting ride into the history of first inhabitants of the area.
