<strong>Verde</strong> <strong>Valley</strong>. Hit the trails throughout the <strong>Verde</strong><br />

<strong>Valley</strong> on foot, bike, or horseback, and keep<br />

your eyes peeled for birds, wildlife, and the<br />

perfect shot to share with friends and family<br />

back home.<br />

Discover the many dining options from smoked<br />

BBQ, fresh-made pasta, and hearty homecooked<br />

meals to rich desserts and locally<br />

made chocolate, and the perfectly paired<br />

wine or brew to wash it down with. Rest easy<br />

and dream of more days in <strong>Cottonwood</strong> and<br />

the <strong>Verde</strong> <strong>Valley</strong> at one of many hotels, bed &<br />

breakfasts, campgrounds, RV sites, and more.<br />

u The <strong>Verde</strong> River is the last river in Arizona still<br />

flowing all year long for its entire length.<br />

u The <strong>Verde</strong> River’s riparian zone (<strong>Verde</strong> River<br />

u The <strong>Verde</strong> River is 192 miles long, and it is<br />

boatable with canoes and kayaks for more than<br />

130 of those miles year-round.<br />

u The trees and plants along the <strong>Verde</strong> River form<br />

the “Frémont cottonwood and Goodding<br />

willow forest type”, among the most<br />

threatened forest types in the U.S. Less than<br />

3<strong>25</strong>,000 acres remain anywhere in the world.<br />

birds and is one of the most diverse and<br />

productive birding spots in the United States.<br />

Birds like the Bald Eagle, Common Black Hawk,<br />

Yellow-billed Cuckoo, Bell’s Vireo, Song Sparrow,<br />

Great Blue Heron, Belted Kingfisher, and many<br />

more are “riparian obligates”, meaning they only<br />

live along a river or other waterway.<br />

more than 2 million people in Maricopa County,<br />

and it is the least expensive water supply in that<br />

connects Dead Horse Ranch State Park to Red Rock State<br />

Park. The trail follows a portion of the historic Lime Kiln<br />

Wagon Road and, is named after a lime kiln used in the<br />

late 1800s to heat limestone to separate and recover the<br />

lime – used in mortar for construction. The Lime Kiln Trail<br />

provides hikers, equestrians, and mountain bikers with<br />

stunning views of the surrounding landscape, including<br />

red rock formations and the <strong>Verde</strong> River. The trailhead<br />

is located off Dead Horse Ranch Road. The trail starts<br />

relatively gentle and becomes more technical as you<br />

move out of Dead Horse Ranch State Park and into the<br />

desert country where mountain bikers can pick up the<br />

pace as the trail provides a clear line of sight through the<br />

slightly rocky and sparsely vegetated landscape.<br />

most diverse and productive birding locations in<br />

the US.<br />

The <strong>Verde</strong> <strong>Valley</strong> boasts several Audubon Important<br />

the <strong>Valley</strong> during their seasonal journeys. Spring is the<br />

peak season for birding, but bird enthusiasts can still<br />

spot a variety of birds throughout the year in the area’s<br />

canyons, grasslands, and elevations. Whether walking<br />

a path, meandering along the riverbank, or hiking up a<br />

canyon, birdwatchers are sure to catch a glimpse of the<br />

resident or visiting birds. verderiver.org/get-involved/<br />

the most beautiful place in America.<br />

The <strong>Verde</strong> <strong>Valley</strong> Wine Trail invites wine<br />

enthusiasts to experience a destination rich in<br />

history, beauty, and the production of exquisite<br />

wines. Each of the wineries and tasting rooms<br />

of activities and events throughout the year. Visit<br />

<strong>Cottonwood</strong> & <strong>Verde</strong> <strong>Valley</strong> <strong>25</strong>


Small Towns<br />

The small towns of the <strong>Verde</strong> <strong>Valley</strong> showcase the best of Arizona’s quaint communities. All are within<br />

a 30-mile radius with an estimated population of 66,000 - each offering visitors a unique experience.<br />

In the shadows of Mingus Mountain and in the heart of<br />

the <strong>Verde</strong> <strong>Valley</strong>, <strong>Cottonwood</strong> offers a distinctive historic<br />

district lined with shops, art galleries, restaurants, and<br />

tasting rooms on its Main Street.<br />

History is alive in nearby Clarkdale, whose homes and<br />

buildings still reflect its early copper smelting heritage.<br />

Four specialized museums focus on Native American<br />

cultures, international copper art, the local railroad, and<br />

town history.<br />

Cornville/Page Springs offers wineries, tasting rooms,<br />

and a few wonderful dining options. This area provides<br />

a relaxed take on some of Arizona’s most pristine highdesert<br />

scenery.<br />

<strong>Cottonwood</strong><br />

Camp <strong>Verde</strong>, located in the geographic center of Arizona,<br />

is rich in history and offers a variety of recreation and<br />

outdoor activities to experience and enjoy.<br />

A <strong>Verde</strong> <strong>Valley</strong> excursion wouldn’t be complete without<br />

a journey up the hill to Jerome, the “City in the Sky.”<br />

Once a thriving mining camp of 15,000, Jerome acquired<br />

“ghost town” status by the 1960s. Today, entrepreneurs<br />

have restored many of the quaint buildings that cling<br />

to the mountainside and the town now dishes out artsy<br />

boutiques and panoramic views in equal measure.<br />

Jerome<br />

Cornville<br />

Speaking of views, Sedona’s stark, giant, red rock<br />

formations are so compelling, they cause grown<br />

men to take up painting or poetry. Toss in dozens of<br />

superb shops, galleries, restaurants, and recreational<br />

opportunities, and Sedona has found a magical elixir.<br />

Lake Montezuma/Rimrock & Beaver Creek<br />

Lake Montezuma/Rimrock is one of the smallest towns in the <strong>Verde</strong> <strong>Valley</strong> but, the area offers big attractions for<br />

outdoor enthusiasts and aspiring archaeologists alike! Located 6 miles north of Camp <strong>Verde</strong>, off Interstate 17.<br />

Visit Montezuma Castle and Montezuma Well National Monuments and the The Crane Petroglyph Heritage Site<br />

– the largest known petroglyph site in the <strong>Verde</strong> <strong>Valley</strong>. Fish, play in the creek or birdwatch in Wet Beaver Creek<br />

(access at Sycamore Community Park).<br />

Jerome<br />

The city in the sky<br />

Jerome was at one time the most talked about<br />

Wild West mining camp in America - it’s now<br />

listed on the National Historic Register.<br />

Its population went from 15,000 in its heyday to a “ghost<br />

town” of under 50 people, to its role today as a center<br />

for the arts with unique shops, sophisticated galleries,<br />

wineries, tasting rooms, bistros, hotels and B&Bs -<br />

with just under 500 permanent residents. Jerome’s<br />

scenic view of the entire <strong>Verde</strong> <strong>Valley</strong> offers wonderful<br />

photographic opportunities.<br />

DINE<br />

Whether you’re in the mood for steak, Mexican fare,<br />

a burger, BBQ, or breakfast, Jerome’s mostly quirky<br />

restaurants will make your stomach smile. For instance, in<br />

a hospital-turned-hotel (Jerome Grand Hotel), the upscale<br />

Asylum Restaurant pairs American & Southwestern<br />

fare with scenic views. Or, located in Arizona’s oldest<br />

operating restaurant building (the English Kitchen, 1899),<br />

Bobby D’s BBQ serves up slow-smoked entrees and fresh<br />

salads that you’ll likely enjoy as much as the atmosphere.<br />

SHOP<br />

The boutiques and galleries in Jerome have many unique<br />

items, and with the local artists who inhabit the town,<br />

you are sure to find artwork and crafts to take home.<br />
