Tuzigoot National Monument
Tuzigoot National Monument information
Lonely Planet review
Squatting atop a ridge about 2 miles north of Clarkdale, Tuzigoot National Monument , a Sinaguan pueblo like nearby Montezuma, is believed to have been inhabited from AD 1000 to 1400. At its peak as many as 225 people lived in its 110 rooms, including a couple of dozen on the upper level. Stop by the visitor center to examine tools, pottery and other artifacts dug up from the ruin, then trudge up a short, steep trail (not suitable for wheelchairs) for memorable views of the Verde River Valley.
