I don't think this is a trail, but more of an old fire road.

It's a nice walk that has a view at the end, nothing more. Usually crowded all of the time.

The path in is a dirt driveway; don't bother if you're looking for a challenge. This is an easy walk with interesting ruins and a beautiful view at the end. The drive through the surrounding area is nice as well. Take a few minutes and check out the painted cave that's a few miles away

Short short walk to the ruins. Cool and very scenic. The views from this home must have been amazing.
