The Apache Trail “combines the grandeur of the Alps, the glory of the Rockies, and the magnificence of the Grand Canyon.” by President Roosevelt
The views are beautiful on the drive. According, to my scenic drive book its a 145-mile drive. The drive can take a full day due to the low-speed limit. The Tonto National Monument is #10 on this drive.
Tonto National Monument has a one-mile round trip hike uphill to see the lower cliff dwellings. The upper cliff dwellings can be seen by guided tour only. Its best to make a reservation for the upper cliff dwelling tour. These pictures are of the lower cliff dwellings.
