This is a fantastic desert canyon hike that leads to beautiful Indian cliff dwelling ruins. I rate this hike difficult due to; route finding, exposer, steepness, running waterways, boulder hopping, and scrambling. An advid hiker won’t have any issues. A casual hiker is in for a long, hard hike.
A 22 mile dirt road leads to the trailhead. 2 primitive camping areas at the trailhead. Limited parking. No facilities.
The hike is about 2.5 miles each way with 2000’ of elevation gain.
The ruins are the main point of interest but the beauty of the canyon is stunning as well. Take your time and enjoy it!
The ruins are in incredible condition considering they are 100’s of years old. Please do your part to keep them undisturbed.
