NOTE: ALLTRAILS SAYS THIS IS 0.6 MILES..IT IS NOT! From the parking lot, you'll end up hiking about 2.24 miles. I would not rate this trail easy either...it's at least moderate, with possibility of strenuous based on your health and physical level.

This was our favorite of the ranger-guided hikes! You begin with a long trek on the mesa-top to the trailhead and then must descend down a steep, winding canyon trail. Of all the guided hikes, this one gives you the most time exploring the ruins freely. Our ranger was entertaining and very knowledgeable. just remember...you leave the way you came!

Nice to get to walk in a dwelling without paying for a tour.
