Although, little known, we were traveling the Scenic Byway (95 in southeastern Utah), which by the way, is stunning with a amazing variation of geologic master pieces, after leaving Natural Bridges National Monument, we saw a simple unassuming sign pointing to Indian Ruins. We dove...More

I did this "tour" with a guide from North Wash Outfitters, see separate review, to make sure you make the most of this amazing area of ruins, petroglyphs and amazing views. Not to be missed if you have interest int he archaeology of the area.

This is a one mile round trip hike. It is moderately strenuous with elevation changes and mild rock climbing and decent. We felt it was worth the trip. We were able to commune with nature and enjoy the area.

Enjoyed the terrain on the hike to the ruins. The ruins themselves are quite distant from the viewing site so bring a pair of binoculars to truly get a feel for the dwellings.
