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.
