Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument offers a glimpse of the homes and lives of the Indians who lived there from the 1280s through the early 1300s. The surroundings probably look today very much like they did when the cliff dwellings were inhabited. It is surrounded by the Gila National Forest and lies at the edge of the Gila Wilderness, the nation's first designated wilderness area.

Accessibility: Trail to the Past is handicapped accessible (for viewing of pictographs) as is the visitor center. As the mile loop trail through the cliff dwellings is steep in places and winds to and through cliff dweller canyon it is not accessible.
