Description

Tuzigoot is an ancient village or pueblo built by a culture known as the Sinagua. The pueblo consisted of 110 rooms including second and third story structures. The first buildings were built around A.D. 1000. The Sinagua were agriculturalists with trade connections that spanned hundreds of miles. The people left the area around 1400. The site is currently comprised of 42 acres.

The visitor center is a small, old-style museum with many artifacts on display. It is one of the few museums interpreting ancient Sinaguan culture in Arizona.

Two trails are found at Tuzigoot. The Ruins Loop trail and the Tavasci Marsh Overlook trail are both a quarter of a mile in length. The Ruins Lopp Trail loops around the pueblo and allows visitors to closely view the structures.

Other hiking opportunities can be found in nearby Sycamore Canyon Wilderness Area, on Mingus Mountain, in Oak Creek Canyon, and at Red Rock State Park.
