This is a really quick 10-minute stop, but it was really cool to see the old granary nestled in the rock. Worth a quick jaunt to see for sure.

Modest ruin, nice little hike, has info plaques along the way.

Nice stroll and a little education at the end of the day. Get a trail map to learn a bit about the granary and local plant life.

Not much of a hike but certainly worthy of 4 stars simply because you get to see a structure built around 1280 A.D. Without expending any effort. Plus it's a good way to end your day in the park.
