The Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument, and all national parks, invite you out to visit FREE OF CHARGE in celebration of National Public Lands Day this Saturday, September 28th, 2013.  The weather is nice and cool and the previously flooded rivers have receded.  In recognition of this fee-free day, according to a news release, the Western National Parks Association will offer a 15% discount on all products at the Park Store.

The Gila Cliff Dwellings is open from 9 am to 4 pm daily.  Staff is available all day to answer questions, and guided tours are available.

Visitors are reminded to dress apropriately for the weather, wear good walking shoes, and take plenty of water when hiking any trails.  For more information, contact the Gila Visitor Center at 536-9461, or go online to
