Worth the side trip off the Main Ruin Loop, if only for the steep ladders bragging rights. It isn't recommended for those afraid of heights, physically challenged, or for children (although a school group was there when I went and they did just fine; probably better than the adults!).

Cool old hotel ruins and nice shade at the end! Not hard either :)

Really cool trail, you get to see a lot of ruins and if you go during the rainy season a small waterfall! The mountains are beautiful and you definitely work up a sweat, but it's an easy hike. It's a gravel trail about 99% of the way with shaded areas to rest. Heard talk of rattlesnakes, but never saw any. No dogs allowed!

Went on this trail during our honeymoon a few years ago, and it was so enjoyable! When my wife and I move to Albuquerque later this summer, we'll definitely go on it as often as we can.

Easy trail with cool cliff dwellings.

Nice easy trail , plenty of shaded areas to stop , take photos and enjoy the scenery . The old buildings and history are interesting as well...
