One of the least hiked but one of the best in the park. The climb to the rim should not discourage anyone. Its over quick and then it is an easy 5 miles. Great views, great historic pueblos and great topography.
Excellent hike! You can't beat the views of Pueblo Bonito. Starts out with a slight incline that's very rocky, after that it's pretty easy. Did this hike with my husband and very small dog. No shade so it would be very hot in the summer. Took just over two hours to hike the loop.
Excellent hike. Once you get about .5 mile in the trail is all yours. Relatively flat terrain except the climb up on top of the canyon rim right at the start. Pass directly by two awesome set of ruins and get great views of Pueblo Bonito on the canyon floor below.
