Clear Creek Ruins

Located on the south side of State Route 260, three miles east of the Verde River, Clear Creek Ruin is believed to have been the largest habitation site in the Verde Valley. Sitting atop a steep cliff overlooking West Clear Creek, the ruin consist of both cavates (hand carved caves) and a large pueblo complex. The site was proposed as a National Research Monument in 1933, but federal funding was unavailable.
