Reviews

The ruins at the beginning of the trail was the best part of this hike. On my visit you could only hike partway on this trail and the park service had the petroglyphs blocked off

It was a beautiful hike in the springtime with wildflowers and ruins. All sorts of beautiful plants. Petroglyphs are near the end.
