Palatki Heritage Site

The Palatki Heritage Site, located near Sedona, in North Central Arizona, features ancient cliff dwellings and rock art sheltered by beautiful red rock cliffs. Currently managed by the U.S. Forest Service under the Red Rock Pass Program, the site is open to the general public for visits seven days a week.

There are two trails at Palatki Heritage Site, one that takes you to the Sinagua cliff dwellings and a second that goes to the alcoves that shelter the painted symbols from every native culture to ever occupy the Verde Valley. Each trail is a quarter mile one way, so the round-trip distance is one mile. The trail to the pictographs is fairly easy but the trail to the cliff dwelling includes about 50 uneven rocky steps.

A small visitor center and bookstore, run by the Arizona Natural History Association, is located a short distance from the parking lot.
