Hiking TrailsNusungvö: The name means "Place of Rest" in the Hopi language. 1.2 miles primitive hike across high prairie grasslands. This trail goes from the Visitor Center to the campground area.

Tsu'vö: The name means "Path of the Rattlesnake" in Hopi. It is a ½ mile loop trail between the twin buttes within the park. It is a nature trail and also an archaeological trail where you can see milling stone areas and petroglyphs.

Diné: This 1½ mile trail goes to Diné Point and connects with both other trails. Diné Point shows a scenic view of the park.

Homolovi I parking lot is located about one mile past the park campground and is next to the Little Colorado River. An easy quarter-mile stroll on an old dirt road leads to the site. We are developing a trail for this site. Please follow the flagged route to avoid damaging sensitive structures.

Homolovi II Trail: ½ mile paved trail that is wheelchair accessible. The 100-yard trail allows access to the largest of the Park's archaeological sites which contains an estimated 1,200 to 2,000 rooms. It is believed that these pueblos were once home to ancestors of the present-day Hopi people. Much of the activity took place during the fourteenth century. There continue to be similarities between the architecture, pottery styles, and art motifs of the Hopi people in the north, and the prehistoric inhabitants of Homolovi.

More than 300 archaeological sites have been identified within the park boundaries, including four major 14th-century pueblos. The visitor center provides exhibits that interpret the significance of this area.
