Tempi’po’op Trail

Tempi’po’op Trail is an exciting trail to walk, or bike. This trail begins at the Anasazi Valley Trailhead. There is a great view of the valley from off the edge of a cliff and petroglyphs (prehistoric rock carvings) from the ancient Anasazi Indians. It is a very enjoyable walk. It is fairly easy, but is still 3 and a half miles long. The wildlife, carvings, and amazing views are definitely part of what make this trail amazing.
