Hike the Verde River: Duff Springs Cliffdwelling and Homestead  

Download full itinerary.

Thursday, April 2, 2020
Please reserve by Mar. 19.

Duff Springs.

The Duff Springs section of the Verde River, about 14 miles downstream from the headwaters, has many fascinating features. There are multiple prehistoric sites, including a small cliff dwelling overlooking the river, and the remains of the homestead of Alexander Duff, a civil war veteran who lived here with his Shoshone wife. The immediate geology along the river is unique with dramatic faulting and deformed layering. We will discuss the geology, prehistory and natural history of the area during the day. Total hiking distance a little over four miles. The climb in and out, several hundred feet elevation gain, is gentle, following an historic wagon road. Activity Rating: 3
