AAA Editor Notes

Balcony House, in a high alcove in the west wall of Soda Canyon, is a site that can be reached only by a 32-foot ladder. Careful attention to detail and the skill necessary to construct a village in this particular alcove make Balcony House a classic example of Pueblo architecture. It can be visited only on ranger-guided trips that fill quickly in summer months. Guided tours are available. Time: Allow 1 hour minimum.
Fee $4. Tickets are sold at the Visitor and Research Center or the Colorado Welcome Center in Cortez.
Hours: Tours are offered daily every 30 minutes 9-5, late May-Labor Day (weather permitting). Tour hours vary rest of year. Phone ahead to confirm schedule.
