Created by underground springs, this limestone sinkhole near Montezuma's Castle was once a large underground cavern. Now a natural well surrounded by Indian cliff dwellings, it is home to plant and animal life found nowhere else in the world. Warm underground springs maintain an unusually stable habitat in the well. Prehistoric farmers utilized this well for crop irrigation. Note that the address given above is for Montezuma's Castle ; the well is located northeast of the castle. The 1/3-mile walkway is not recommended for wheelchairs.
