Nestled in the county of Yavapai, in the city named Camp verde, you will see a very large building on your way to the Montezuma’s Castle National Monument. A casino called Cliff Castle.
After you drive to the Parking lot, park and go in to pay the fee of $10 bucks to both Montezuma and Tuzigoot (you can read my article on Tuzigoot)this will cover up to seven days.
To the left of the trail is the verde river and many different plants that are food and used as medical properties!
As you walk through, you will also notice many small signs showing you all the plants that grow in this area. The people were smart and used earth’s natural resources as means to survive! Archaeologists believe the reason for building the castle so high up is so wild animals or other tribes could not get to them, The Castle has about 20 rooms with 20-30 people living there.
So, you want to know more, you can always visit and learn more! Hours of operation are daily, 8-5 P.M. and this loop is only a 0.4 mile walk! So anyone can come visit it! You can read my article on the Tuzigoot and the Sinagua people as well!
