Rita H. on Tuzigoot Trail
Took advantage of the free entry today. National Parks celebrating 100 years of service. Information i read prior to visit…..Tuzigoot National Monument preserves a 2-3 story pueblo ruin on the summit of a ridge. 120 feet above the Verde River floodplain. Tuzigoot is Apache for :crooked water:.
Great for a day hike or a nice little backpacking trip. There are a few swimming holes and sandy beaches the farther back you hike. Be sure to bring that bug repellent in the summer months, there are tons of insects around the water! And if I remember correctly you cannot burn fires down there.
