Do the whole loop around the badger sites for some great views of cliff dwellings. This area is not monitored much and is burned up pretty bad but if you’re into ancient ruins take the walk.

Great historic hike, lots of cool facts about the ruins along the way.

Pleasant walk. A lot quieter on this side of the park.

Started at info. kiosk and hiked the trail to all of the Badger Community exhibits. Nice idea to place metal buildings over the excavated areas for protection.
On the way back to the kiosk, turned left onto the Nordenskiold Site #16 Trail. This was well worth hiking over to see the viewpoint of the ruins across the canyon. The whole area is flat with no shade, so dress appropriately and take fluids with you.
