Hike the Tuzigoot Trail

0.5 miles 55 ft gain  - Loop Trail

Added by Lucas Bremer

Go back in time with scenic river valley views at Tuzigoot National Monument.

Spend a couple of hours to discover the incredible legacy of an ancient people at Tuzigoot National Monument. 

Start at the Visitor Center, then take a self-guided, half mile loop trail that will lead around and through an incredible 110 room pueblo. The large building was home to the Sinagua people between the years of1125 and 1400. The trail also offers outstanding views of the Verde River below. The trail is paved and accessible for those that are disabled. 

Stay on the trail to protect the ruins, and because this is prime rattlesnake habitat. Fun fact, Arizona is home to 13 subspecies of rattlesnake.
