Tuzigoot (Apache for Crooked Water)

Tuzigoot is the remains of a Sinagua village which sits atop a ridge 120 feet above the Verde Valley. The original pueblo was two stories high is some places and had 77 ground room floors. Most of the rooms that remain are partially preserved walls a few feet high. The largest dwelling, on top of the hill, is complete with a reconstructed ceiling plus a ladder up to the roof. From the roof there are panoramic views in all directions. The visitor center has a nice display of Indian artifacts, most of which have been found on-site.

Palatki Heritage Site(Hopi for Red House)

Palatki is located just outside Sedona. There are two trails at Palatki, one trail takes you to the Sinagua cliff dwellings and a second that goes to the alcoves that shelter the rock art or pictographs. The trail to the pictographs is fairly easy but the trail to the cliff dwellings includes about 50 rocky steps. Palatki, and its sister site Honanki, are the largest cliff dwellings in the Red Rock country and is a fun day adventure while staying at our Sedona Boutique hotel.

Honanki Heritage Site (Hopi for "Bear House")

Honanki was built by the Sinagua around 100-1300 A.D. Honanki is located in a remote Red Rock canyon outside Sedona, just off an unpaved road. This well preserved pueblo is of masonry construction and is one of the area's largest, once having 60 rooms. Some of the walls still stand, while others are in various states of deterioration. Above the ruins are numerous pictographs, some of which predated the cliff dwellings by several thousand years.

V-Bar-B Petroglyph Site

V-BAR-B Is the largest known petroglyph site in the Verde Valley and is one of the best preserved. The rock art site consists of 1,032 petroglyphs in 13 panels.

Montezuma Castle is 90% original despite years of excavation and visitation. It is built into a deep alcove with masonry rooms added in phases. The roof was built of sycamore beams, reeds, grasses and clay which served as the floor for the next room built on top.

Montezuma Well

Montezuma Well is a natural sinkhole 368 feet wide, with cliffs that tower 70 feet above the water's surface. Every day 1.5 million gallons of warm water flows into the well, fed by large underwater vents, some as deep as 56 feet below the surface. The water exits the well through a cave 300 feet long, emerging into an irrigation ditch originally constructed almost 1000 years ago by the Sinagua Indians. Even today the well offers an oasis for visitors and wildlife.
