About Chavez Pass
Nuvakwewtaqa Ruins, otherwise known as Chavez Pass Ruins, are the remains of a substantial Sinagua pueblo occupied between A.D. 1050-1425. The site served as a trade center and was integral to ancestral Hopi migrations to the east. Please join trip leader Jeff Charest for a tour of the ruins.
Located halfway between Winslow and Pine, Arizona, the site is accessible by car and a short but somewhat strenuous hike. Please note that the pueblo is situated on a steep and rocky slope, and some may find the approximately 1-mile hike difficult.
Unimproved camping areas are available near the Ranger station, or a developed campground is available at the Happy Jack Lodge roughly 15 minutes away on Lake Mary Road (there are also cabins available at the Lodge.
