We very much enjoyed our visit and exploration of Jerome and Cleopatra Hill on such a beautiful November 2016 day.

Cleopatra Hill has a big J for the town of Jerome. Under the hill are miles and miles of tunnels. The area is no longer mined. It is a strenuous hike to the top. The hill was covered in trees until they were all cut for supports for the mine.

It is the hill that sits at the back of Jerome and has a large white J on the side. It is typical of the country around jerome which is rocky and barren

Jerome is such a cool place to visit. Missed it my first two trips to the area. Now I know why people that I talked to recommended it.

The hill with the J on can be seen for miles from Jerome...It is possible to drive around and is a well known landmark which towers over the town.... The hill has little in the way of vegetation but is still worth the visit..

This is the backdrop and locator for the town of Jerome, identified by the big letter J placed high on the hill. The letter is placed on and the town is situated on the east side of Cleopatra Hill. It takes only a few minutes to see Cleopatra Hill, but give yourself at least three hours to take in the... More

We discovered Jerome entirely by accident. We were staying in Sedona and rode the Verde Canyon Railway. We saw the big J on the hill and asked our train attendant what it was and she filled us in. Interested, we immediately drove up to check it out. This was once a mining town that was abandoned when the mine closed.... More

I didn't actually hike to the top of Cleopatra Hill, but I saw it all day as I walked around in the Jerome area. I could see it really well from the Jerome State Park. Love that J! And I love those houses nestled at the foot of it.
