If you’re a historical buff it’s a neat place. Visitors center is nice bought some prickly pear treats to take home. Not a lot of “wow” factor in the monument itself but some interesting history.

It’s a short drive to the parking lot. Beautiful views. The trail is concrete so I wouldn’t walk a dog on it without booties due to the heat in the summer. Was also disappointed that you currently can not access the roof due to the amount of moisture the area got during 2019. The top is closed but the trail is open. Very easy walk that takes you around the monument and back to your car. Be aware that it costs $10 to hike the trail unless you have a National parks pass like I got this year. Then entrance is free for up to 4 people.

Short easy sidewalk path around the monument. Has a great view of Verde Valley & Dead Horse Ranch. No shade or shelter, so its a hot hike in summer months. Very nice museum at the check-in office.

An easy walk for all the family from the visitor centre. Interesting history. Entry fee applies if you don’t have a National Parks pass.

Go for the history and the great view of Middle Verde Valley. Easy trail is exposed so a hat is recommended. Cost per person is steep but the best bet is a pass - good for national parks and some national forest fees. Pass is good for up to 4 adults or a car-load at some sites.

Cool ruins with an informative museum having a nice collection of restored (some partial) amazing pottery. Great views of the valley, glad it was reclaimed & re-planted

A quick visit here after Montezuma Castle on my way to Sedona. Walked along the pathway on the ridge looking down on the Verde Valley for a good explanation of the local plant life. Then walked to the nearby ruins of a Sinagua village.

As one of their many informative signs says: From Rubble to Reconstruction. Interesting look back into the living area of these Native Americans some 900 years ago. Very easy walk through the small grounds and visitors center with nice vistas of the surrounding area. The old mining town of Jerome can be seen in the far hills.

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.
