The facilities and grounds of Tuzigoot National Monument are closed each year on December 25. Rangers will reopen the monument to welcome visitors at 8:00 a.m. MST on December 26.
Please follow the directions above and do NOT use a GPS. Most systems are based on an old map including a road through Dead Horse Ranch State Park which does not exist today. We are working with GPS providers to update maps and encourage you to download updates for your system. Until then, use a good ol' map and the directions above.

Both the fruits and pads of the prickly pear cactus can be eaten! Today you can buy them at some grocery stores, but the javelina who roam around Tuzigoot National Monument like to eat them right off the plant.
