The All Trail map in totally wrong. This is an in and out trail between ruins. If you follow the map you go into prohibited areas on to ruins. That is a felony.

This was a nice, short hike. The trail was well defined and maintained.

The actual trail is an out and back totaling .75 miles. The ruins are quite large, but if you're looking for a good hike look elsewhere.
