The Broken Arrow Trail takes hikers on a winding path into a scenic valley surrounded by soaring red rock cliffs. The path gradually ascends to Chicken Point, a place with sweeping panoramic views and excellent photo opportunities. In the following account, Ernie reports on his hiking adventures along the Broken Arrow Trail.
Some views from atop the pueblo at Tuzigoot National Monument might make you wonder how on earth people chose this barren spot to live, and how they possibly scrapped out an existence here. But turn to the North and the East, and a whole different picture emerges. Tavasci Marsh, an ancient oxbow of the Verde River packs this section of valley with life, from cattails and cottonwoods to uncountable species of critters drawn to the plentiful food, water and shelter the marsh provides.
The panel of petroglyphs is hidden from view, a large juniper obscuring the boulder located just before a narrow one-lane bridge that crosses Red Tank Draw. The petroglyphs are shallow and difficult to make out or distinguish from naturally occurring markings on the lichen-covered rock. But a few moments of patient study pays off and the figures and symbols emerge.
