Plan Your Visit
Make the most of your visit.
Spend a few hours and discover the incredible legacy of an ancient people at Tuzigoot National Monument.
A self-guided, 1/3-mile loop trail leads you around and through an incredible 110 room pueblo. The trail also offers outstanding views of the Verde River and Tavasci Marsh.
Another 1/2 mile round trip trail takes you to a beautiful constructed overlook of Tavasci Marsh.
Ranger programs are offered daily at 10:30am (starting May 18th, 2014 programs will start at 10am due to heat considerations), but are subject to staffing. Dogs, on leashes no longer than 6 feet, are welcome on the park's trails. Pet owners must clean up after their animals.
