    Awesome for the whole family

    VERY dog friendly, interesting place. Your dog can even become a “bark ranger”. We have been all over Northern Arizona and this has been the most dog friendly park we have visited. They even let our dog in the visitor center.

    Nice place and dog Friendly

    my husband i were looking for something to do in the area and were hoping to bring our two dogs. i saw the one review of Montezuma Castle and decided to go. I completely agree with the review I read - nice wide path, easy walk, lots of shade. There is some dirt on the sides of the path before the off limit area where our dogs were able to pee and it didn’t seem bad/wrong. i think some of the younger kids there enjoyed seeing our dogs more than the “castle”.

    Dog Friendly!!!

    Wide paths to accommodate others and our dogs while enjoying the hike and the sights!!! Path has a lot of shade for the dogs and us to walk and enjoy some time taking pictures and reading the tour placards.
