Sierra Ancha Cliff Dwellings Of The Tonto

Sierra Ancha Cliff Dwellings Of The Tonto

"Prehistoric cliff dwellings are located in several of the rugged canyons within and near the Sierra Ancha Wilderness. They were built between 1280 and 1350 A.D. by Indians known presently as the "Salado". Why they chose to utilize this challenging environmental zone is not yet fully understood.

Cliff dwellings are fragile and irreplaceable. Please do not climb on walls or roofs or cause any other form of injury or disturbance. Violators are subject to arrest, fine, and/or imprisonment.

Enjoy but do not destroy your cultural heritage."
