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 to. The most exciting and family-friendly site is "Three Kivas Pueblo," a reconstructed kiva that you can walk on and even experience climbing an old ladder down into the dwelling. The stone, mud, and wood construction offers a glimpse into life over a thousand years ago. As you travel the route, keep an eye out for several old dwellings and petroglyphs hidden along the cliffs all over the region. This road makes for a mild yet interesting ride into the history of the area's early inhabitants.
