Twin Arrows, Arizona: Twin Arrows Trading Post - RuinsTwo giant arrows seem lodged in the ground, falling just short of what remains of Route 66. Restored in 2009.
Twin Arrows: We've watched with resignation the gradual decay of the Twin Arrows east of Flagstaff, Arizona. The two big shafts -- telephone poles, actually -- were left to rot when the trading post that owned them closed in 1998. It wouldn't be long, we thought, before they collapsed in a puff of desert dust, and then were moved to our Gone But Not Forgotten section. [09/28/2009] Complete Story...
Visitor Tips and News About Twin Arrows Trading Post - Ruins
I've been to Twin Arrows several times; I love the place. It's not possible to park in front of it but you can park just a few feet away on the right side and walk back. I went inside the building last year. It's all devastated, unfortunately, and the ceiling is falling down. Too bad, because the place really feels like the old times and the building has a very interesting shape. I'm glad to hear that it might be restored.[Pat, 09/14/2013]
Just went by Twin Arrows. The concrete barriers are still there, and the old trading post building is dilapidated, but the arrows are looking pretty good.[Ann, 01/20/2013]
Fun stop. Too bad someone couldn't come in and reopen it.[Tanya, 04/06/2012]
You can't pull into the Twin Arrows Trading Post parking lot at all now. The trading post is long closed down and they have concrete barriers all around. Can't even pull over to do a picture.[Dana, 08/11/2010]
... though we have recent reports of the arrows restored. Perhaps they're not ready to open for business...
