Tuzigoot (Apache for crooked water) is the remnant of a Southern Sinagua village built between 1000 and 1400 CE. It crowns the summit of a long ridge rising 120 feet above the Verde Valley. The original pueblo was two stories high in places, with 87 ground-floor rooms. There were few exterior doors; entry was by ladders through roof openings. The village began as a small cluster of rooms inhabited by some 50 people for 100 years. In the 1200s the population doubled and then doubled again.
Tuzigoot National Monunment is located 50 miles south of Flagstaff via US Alt. 89, or 110 miles north of Phoenix via US-260. A self-guided, 1/3-mile trail leads you around the 110 room pueblo with views of the Verde River and Tavasci Marsh. A visitor center, with a museum and bookstore inside, and a picnic area are available.
