Time of Day: morning Length of Time: 2 hours Difficulty: Hard Number of People Encountered: 0-10 ppl Recommend to a Friend: Neutral Report: Starts out fairly easy but quickly becomes more challenging. Trail runs on a ledge on the side of a cliff (hence the visit to a cliff dwelling along the way). Return to mesa top is via very steep exposed rock steps. Absolutely not for anyone with fear of heights. Water Availability: Very warm and dry climate -- need lots of water. Suggested Accessories: Hiking stick was very helpful.
Difficulty: Moderate Number of People Encountered: 0-10 ppl Recommend to a Friend: Highly Report: Temperature around 80-85 degrees, so it was very comfortable hiking. See these petroglyphs before the sandstone wears away!
