Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument

Superintendent Name: 
Steve Riley
Over 700 years ago, the Mogollon people made their homes and lived in the area now known as Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument. The monument is surrounded by the Gila National Forest and lies within the rugged Gila Wilderness, the nation's first wilderness area. The wilderness designation means that the wilderness character of the area will not be altered by the intrusion of roads or other evidence of human presence.
