An interpretive loop through Hohokam and early Spanish ruins. This short trail crosses Sutherland Wash to provide an interpretive loop through the ruins of a Hohokam Indian village. The Hohokam are thought to be the ancient forebears of the Tohono O’odham Indians, and contemporaries of the Anasazi. In contrast to their cliff-dwelling neighbors to the north, the Hohokam built villages on the flats. Highly advanced irrigation systems allowed them to grow crops with the minimal moisture provided by seasonal rains. Excavations have revealed the outlines of a stone wall that once surrounded the village here, as well as the foundations of pit dwellings. The centerpiece of the ruin is an oblong ball court, once the site of sports and games for the Indians who lived here centuries ago. The rugged cliffs of Pusch Ridge provide a striking backdrop for this fascinating archaeological tour.
