Homolovi State Park is hosting special tours of Homolovi IV, a site that is usually closed to the public. These special ranger-led tours will allow you to access this site. The tours are available on Oct. 5, 6, 12, 19, 20, 26 and Nov. 2.
Each tour will leave from the Homolovi Visitor Center at 10 a.m. and visitors will follow the ranger in their own vehicle to the Homolovi IV Site about 12 miles from the visitor center. Good hiking boots are recommended, along with a jacket and water. Tours are limited to 15 people and you must call the park at (928) 289-4106 to reserve a spot on the tour.
Homolovi, one of a series of many ancient Hopi pueblos found in the Southwest, offers members of the public the opportunity to begin their journey into Hopi life and culture. Like the modern visitor making their way to Hopi, Homolovi was a stop for the ancestral Hopi people along their migration route, eventually moving on and settling at one of the Hopi villages.
