Such a rewarding hike. It took us a minute to realize where we needed to park, and then again where to enter. You go down a steep hill by the bridge. The hike was easy enough, even carrying roughly 30 lb. packs. We were hoping to hike as far back the trail as we could, but one of our members fell ill and we only made it slightly pass House On Fire. That right there was breath taking. We got there at the perfect time and were able to find some of the hand prints on the walls as well. We set up camp for the night against the rocks in some trees and cactus. A few of us day hiked back to see the other ruins. I don't think we made it as far as we could possibly go, but once you start climbing on the slick rocks, it gets harder to find the path further back. I would love to go back and see just how far we can go eventually, but it's not on any of my immediate trip plans as of now.

I would say it’s more like 3 miles but so worth it! Kids loved looking in the ruins and I loved the history!

Just off hwy 95 and first intersection of Butler wash. Its a 10 minute stop, poorly marked. The tracks were minor but tracks are always interesting.

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.

Few more pictographs past the campground.

Short flat easy hike back to the ruin along a creek bed. Partially shaded along the way which is a plus in the hot summer sun. The ruin is picturesque but not real large. It is worth the visit.

So delightful indeed! easy hike with the treat of the house on fire ruins.

This hike is very easy but so enjoyable. The footing is like walking in a dry creek bed and about a mile up the trail is house on fire. The walk itself is serene, quiet, a calm hum. The trail is flanked by yellow juniper, ponderosa pine, sage and manzanita. It’s mellow enough that your exhausted irritated teenage daughter will manage without too much complaining. I LOVED this hike!

Cool. Just have to look around a bit for the tracks.

Easy hike and great photo ops of several ruins. Hiked mid December, dry, sunny and daytime temps in the low 50s. Little or no people, awesome.

Hiked mid December. No rain, temps from the mid 20s to low 50s and dry. Frozen streams easily crossed. Due to shorter daylight hours, impending snow storm and time exploring exquisite Junctions Ruins, we hiked only as far as the junction. Beautiful canyon. We’ll return to hike and explore further.

Fun! We were able to find three ruins in 3 miles (one way) but I’m sure there are more! Just keep looking up.

A great hike with kids. It was a little muddy with a lot of clay, but maybe nothing to worry about unless it's monsoon season.

Somewhat easy trail up Mule Canyon, following a small creek or wash (depending on when you go) Great photo op, can go farther down the canyon to other ruins if your wish & have the time
