Day hike

Great place to spend the day and look for ruins. The cotton woods are still changing colors. Not many people during the week.

Hiking the trails along comb ridge and cedar mesa was a first, and an absolutely fabulous experience. For one, there were few people hiking and the trails were not well marked...making this an experience we used to have in our national parks. Now that our parks are overrun with visitors making the traiils seem like traffic jams, this entire area,... More

Almost all the drainages coming out of the comb and flowing easterly have something to see in them as well as enjoying the solitude.

It's dusty, remote, pristine and a treasure trove of ancient relics. Petroglyphs, pictoglyphs, pottery chards and ruins from an ancient civilization are common.

One of the many beautiful geological landmarks of the Cedar Mesa area, best picture time is in the morning or evening when sun is low.

I have been there many times, including many hikes and three backpacking trips. Every time I marvel at the natural beauty of the geology and archaeology. Lots of sites to visit an so close to Bluff which has nice lodging and eatereis.

Comb Ridge, just west of Bluff Utah, is often photographed but not often visited. Just off the Butler wash road on the east side of Comb Ridge there is access to the many of the ridges canyons some of which contain petroglyphs and ancient pueblo ruins. Great for hiking and exploring for everyone especially families.

The great thing about this are is there is plenty to explore. But I am of the mind set that you have to do your own research and search out those things you want to discover. This weeds out the casual observer who may be so inclined to take an artifact as a souvenir. If you're willing to research you're... More

Pick a canyon any canyon. It's just great hiking for the spring/fall season. Lots of very early American indigenous history in the rocks.

Lower and lower-angled than Waterpocket Fold and San Rafael Reef. Excellent for first exposure to slickrock hiking and short canyon hiking with small Anasazi ruins scattered around. Cruising sloped slickrock is like technical snow climbing -- go wherever your fancy takes you.
