    The cliff dwellings are obviously the star here but there are hiking trails and camping spots for those who are interested in exploring the local terrain.

    The Spruce Tree House is the third largest cliff dwelling in the park and does not require a ticket / tour guide like most of the others. Plan to hit this one if you only want to see one - it's located near the museum / gift shop and is one of the best preserved sites. You can even climb down a ladder into one of the kivas.
