Visit Edge of the Cedars Pueblo, a village inhabited by the ancestors of contemporary Puebloan peoples from AD 825 to 1125, and climb down a ladder to enter the 1,000-year-old kiva. View the largest collection of Ancestral Puebloan (Anasazi) pottery on display in the Four Corners area. Enjoy programs for adults and children, including archaeology and art exhibitions, storytelling, craft workshops, and an annual Indian art market held on the first Saturday every May. Park facilities include a very short, paved interpretive trail around the ruin, landscaping with native plants and outdoor sculptures, and a picnic area (sorry, no camping).

Drove this Byway in 1994, and again in 2005. There are no towns between Blanding and Hanksville. You pass by several Indian Ruins, as well as Natural Bridges NM, and the upper end of Lake Powell. It is very scenic, and there's not a lot of traffic. Some of the grades are fairly steep; if you're pulling a 5th wheel, you will know it.

Edge of the Cedars is in Blanding, and you go through a museum indoors. Later, you can wander about outside through Indian village ruins. Very interesting.
