With the backdrop of beautiful red-rock formations, it’s no wonder that people have been drawn to this region for millennia.
Just outside present-day Sedona, various American Indians visited the Verde Valley and left their mark. The first full-time settlers at Honanki were the Sinaqua, who built dwellings into the cliff face and hunted game and tended crops on the lush valley floor, between 1150 and 1300 A.D. Honanki was last inhabited between 1400 and 1875, by Yavapai and Apache people, who also contributed their pictographs.
A great place to stretch your legs and breathe in the fresh air, the site has two trails for self-guided tours to explore the ruins as well as the surrounding pinon-juniper forest.
The picturesque city of Sedona has a variety of lodging options available, including campgrounds, Adobe style inns, and cabins in the woods.
