The Verde River Greenway passes through Tuzigoot National Monument and allows hikers, equestrians and mountain bikers to experience the Tavasci Marsh and Verde River all while providing amazing views of the Tuzigoot Pueblo. It is important to remember, however, that the National Park Service (NPS) has regulations to protect plants, wildlife and archaeological sites from human-caused damage. In the past year, NPS employees have noticed more visitors engaged in illegal activities on National Park lands. To help protect the monument and keep from receiving an expensive ticket, please adhere to the following rules.

-Stay on established trails only. Off-trail hiking, equestrian use and biking is strictly prohibited. Off-trail travel includes the use of “social trails” that are not established by the National Park Service. Established trails are shown on maps available at the Tuzigoot Visitor Center. 

For more information, see 36 Code of Federal Regulations § 2.1- Preservation of natural, cultural, and archeological resources

-All pets must be restrained on a leash not to exceed six feet in length.

For more information, see 36 Code of Federal Regulations § 2.15- Pets

-Visit only during the established hours of operation. The Verde River Greenway trail is open from dawn until dusk and the Tuzigoot Ruin and Visitor Center are open from 8AM-5PM. Access to the greenway and ruin are prohibited after hours.

For more information, see 36 Code of Federal Regulations § 2.31- Trespassing
