The Verde river runs through the verde valley in central Arizona. The Verde River is one of Arizona’s last free-flowing river systems. It provides crucial habitat for fish and wildlife, fresh water for local agricultural production, recreational opportunities for locals and tourists alike, and brings clean drinking water to over 2 million people in the greater Phoenix area. The valley is overlooked by Mingus Mountain and the Mogollon Rim. There are many things to see and do in the Verde Valley with communities like Jerome, Clarkdale, Cottonwood, Camp Verde & Sedona. Nearby communities include Prescott, just over Mingus Mountain and world famous Sedona Arizona.
