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).

We drove the entire length, but only recorded from Hanksville to the turn off for Bears Ears. There’s so much to see on this road. Keep in mind after Hanksville there’s really no services until you reach the end of the byway... no gas stations, stores or restaurants. If you drive without stopping it may be ok. But if you want to drive into Bears Ears or Natural Bridges National Monument ... assure you fill your gas tank at either end of the by way and get snacks and water. Keep in mind there’s limited to almost no cell service on most of this route including Bears Ears or Natural Bridges National Monument.

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.
