Honanki Heritage Site


Honanki is an impressive vestige of a Sinaguan pueblo, similar to Montezuma Castle and Tuzigoot. This site was originally active between AD 1000 and 1400 and includes significant cliff dwellings and petroglyphs. After the Sinagua people moved on, it was subsequently inhabited by the Yavapai and Apache. A Red Rock or National Parks pass is required for admission.
