Short hikes to Butler Wash ruins and the Ballroom ruin. Butler Wash has a parking lot, pit toilet, and developed trail to a view point. The trail doesn't take you down into the canyon for close up views of the ruins. The Ballroom ruin trail begins at a small parking lot on the north side of hwy 95. Bear left when the trail forks. You can't miss the ruin in the large cave mouth. The ruins themselves are in bad condition and not impressive. The cave itself however is impressive, and the timber anchor holes in the rock show this must have been a major complex in its time.

Nice ruins, to many trampling over it. Hold it sacred and stay back a little. It seemed further back from the road than I thought. Don't give up to soon. Its a good climb when you get there.
