Outstanding trail walking by a number of ruins

Nice easy trail that takes you past ancient ruins. It's amazing that they are still there. Dogs are allowed on a leash. The visitor center has restrooms and a water fountain. Even in mid July it wasn't hot walking the trail.

The trail takes you past many ancient ruins and is really quite incredible. Easy for all ages and it seemed that many parts were wheelchair accessible.

Great short hike for all ages.

Great family hike
