Tonto National Monument Lower Ruins

The Lower Ruin is reached by a paved, half mile self-guided trail which leads from the visitor center/museum quite steeply up the side of a hill.

This two - floor ruin originally had 19 rooms which are quite well-preserved and visitors are permitted to walk around the inside. Originally, the only way in was by a ladder leading to an entrance to the far left side of the structure; which made the building easy to defend.
