I love history. Very cool spot to check out.

perfect short hike with views of tuzigoot and tavasci marsh.

Short walk to the ruin, nice view of the area. Visitor center had lots of historical information and the staff were great with our kids.

This is a great trail to get away from the crowds in Sedona, and it offers incredible views of the Red Rock Secret Mountain Wilderness.

A really nice trek if you're staying at the Mago Retreat. The grindstone tank is a naturally formed flume and holding "tank" on the side of Black Mountain. There is a scramble up the walls of the tank which you can avoid, the views inside are nice too. Nicer views await those that scramble up to the top however!

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.

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.
