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.
- Old Route 66, Twin Arrows, AZ
- Exit 219 off of eastbound I-40. A concrete barrier blocks access directly in front of the ruins, but drive a little further east and the barrier ends. Then you can pull off and park, and walk back on the safe inner side.
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
You can skirt around the concrete barriers from the east side of the loop created by the westbound off-ramp.[Scott Jones, 05/12/2015]
Blocked off by concrete K rails. Trading post looks like it's closed. On the side of highway construction. This is a great drive-by -- take a picture without getting out.[Angela P, 08/25/2014]
We continued driving east to go around the concrete barrier and get closer. However, it's completely fenced off now. So, to get closer you have to hop over the concrete barrier, which you shouldn't because that would be trespassing. *wink*[Mary Cancilla, 07/16/2014]

This place is in pretty good shape considering how long it's been abandoned. Totally worth the trip -- it's deserted and very cool. It was better than I had hoped!
You can only get to it from the westbound side of the highway off the Twin Arrows exit. Then you have to pass it, turn around and park on the other side of the road. There's no parking at the site.[McDiann, 04/10/2014]
