Super cool Native American ruin. Definitely worth a visit for first time visitors to Arizona. And conveniently located half way between Jerome and cottonwood and just a 30 minute drive from Sedona.
No hiking here, but worth it to drive by at the least. And if you're into history and archeology, check out the visitor center.
Tuzigoot Site is an elongated complex of stone masonry rooms that were built along the spine of a natural outcrop in the Verde Valley. The central rooms stand higher than the others and they appear to have served public functions. The pueblo has 110 rooms.
“Very nice park with easy access from the interstate. The paved trail at the base of the ruins has plenty of information about the ruins and the people who lived here. Be sure to drive to the associated well for a neat experience walking the rim of the well.”
