Please be mindful and don't enter interior rooms of the Citadel Ruins, don't erase the traces of America's past. The Citadel is a very nice and well preserved ruin located in Road Canyon within Bears Ears National Monument. To get to the trailhead, you will travel down the 261 until you come to Cigarette Springs Road. Cigarette Springs Road is a fairly well-maintained road. You can also find parking near the rim of Road Canyon. Just after turning onto Cigarette Springs Road you will come across a BLM sign asking you to pay $2 for a permit. The trail begins by heading east on a packed sand trail along the south side of a canyon for about a mile and a half. To get to the ruins you will have to hike some exposed slickrock areas and scramble a bit. Show more

Originally constructed in 1893 for river access for goldminers, this rugged trail descends over fifteen hundred feet to the San Juan River. The trail consists of steep switchbacks on rocky terrain, and as such should be navigated with care. This is an out and back trail that begins downhill and ends with an uphill climb back to the rim.
