Casner Canyon Vortex Tour
History of Casner Canyon Vortex
Native tribes, including the Sinagua, Anasazi, and Mogollon, populated the Casner Canyon area before settlers arrived from the eastern United States. They were nomadic hunters, who over time began to settle in pueblo-style communities, building dwellings into cliff and canyon walls. The Casner Canyon Vortex trail was established by the Casner family in the 1880’s to move their cattle from the Verde Valley to higher elevations in the summer. In 1875, traveling by covered wagon, Riley Casner and his wife Rebecca arrived in Jerome, Arizona where they started the first orchard in the Verde Valley. Today, the trail requires a USFS Special Use Permit. This access is granted for one trip a week during the months when the area is not frozen or snowy.
