Interesting place to see the native people in the area. Not as much a hike as it is an outdoor museum.

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:.

Very much a touristy National Monument trail. It took only a few minutes to walk the entire thing while looking at the ruins and reading the signs. Very interesting history though.

This is a walk, not a trail. Regardless, it is a native site full of history well worth visiting. Many real hikes in the area.

Kind of a tourist trail that just goes to some really neat ruins.

This isn't a "hike." It's just the sidewalk that traverses the Tuzigoot National Monument -- a village that was once home to about 225 people. The site is very interesting, and there's a small museum at the entrance.

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.
