Short, but steep. Starts across from the entrance to the visitor center parking lot. Climbs to the outlines of several prehistoric buildings. Trailside exhibits. The Archaeology Trail is a short trail that leads to exhibits of prehistoric buildings. There are some low angle views of surrounding mountains.

Nice moderate mid level view. Nothing over the top stunning, except a few mule deer. Is a nice short hike to wind down a long day.

Wouldn’t take the time to do. It was very hot. And the “ruins” at the top were a unkept information board and some black plastic tarp. The view at the top was the watchman campground and the visitor center parking lot.

If you're in the parking lot by the visitor's center it's worth taking the few minutes to climb this hill for the view. I wouldn't make a special trip though.

Short but very steep up to some ruins. There are a few informational boards along the way. The top of this trail gives some amazing views of the park.
