Please note that this is not an officially marked/maintained trail. To get to the main ruins just walk along the main creek heading east the whole way and eventually you'll run into the end of the canyon/beginning of the creek where the water used to flow down. The Main ruins will be clearly visible on the south end. To get to the upper ruins you must scale up either the north or south end of the canyon you begin the hike in. It can be a bit challenging for those not used to bushwacking or heights but is easily doable. Trailhead coordinates are 34.910283, -111.810515 Upper ruins coordinates are 34.907013,-111.803433 Main Ruins Coordinates are 34.907308,-111.802656 PLEASE BE RESPECTFUL OF THE RUINS. They are not in the best shape, especially the upper ones. With limited traffic it is very important to keep these well preserved and not vandalized. The canyon itself is beautiful, with a lot of opportunity for trailblazing and good exploring. Show more
