Return to Azatlan Educational Hike

Azatlan is the contemporary archaeological name given to a large Hohokam community that existed north of the Fort McDowell Yavapai Reservation and east of Rio Verde. Join PastFinders experts for a hike through one of the largest archeological sites in central Arizona, which lies right next door to the Preserve along the Verde River. The hike will include visits to the ancient ‘ball courts’ used by the native peoples, traces of their canals, and other evidence of their civilization. This is a slow-paced hike with no shade. It is a limited attendance hike and reservations are absolutely required.
