Petrified Wood Collecting Map-Woodruff, Arizona
A visual map of the location of two good collecting sites for petrified wood south of Woodruff, Arizona.
Warning: The last dirt road that you drive (1.3 miles down) can be a bit rough, especially during or after a heavy rain.
Text Directions: Take Arizona 77 south from Holbrook to the Woodruff turnoff. Go east to the town of Woodruff. You will pass a large church, and the road will end at a "T". Turn right (south). You will go over a single-lane bridge. Continue until the road branches in a "Y". Take the left-hand branch. At mile post #2(three miles from the bridge), you will see a windmill and a dirt road on your left. Turn left at this road. Drive approximately 1.3 miles. You will pass some "farm" buildings on your left. A short distance further you will come to a "Y" in the road. Turn right and stop. You can collect petrified wood on the hill immediately to your left or drive about 1/4 mile further and collect on the hill to the right of the road.
WARNING: Be aware that private property lines are constantly changing, so be aware, be courteous, and be ready to leave if asked to. Also, please do not litter or otherwise ruin the area for others. Let's preserve our precious few collecting sites.
