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.

We followed the brochure in the Bluff Visitor's Center which wasn't 100% accurate, but got us to the parking spot at the end of the road. We hiked down to the edge of the canyon and there, my younger daughter got a case of cold feet. So we waited at the top while my other daughter and her father hiked... More

Hire a guide from Far Out Expeditions otherwise prepare for getting lost along the way. Take lots of water.

We've driven the length of Comb Ridge on both sides and hiked to various sites on the east side of the ridge. It's an amazing place and hiking is not long or difficult. The Procession Panel is especially worth the effort to get to. The southern end near Bluff has the best hiking and ruins.

Butlers Wash let you explore old native American culcture. When visiting the sites be respectful and follow the rules of BLM.

Do yourself a favor and explore comb ridge. It's an archeology hot spot. You'll have to do some walking and exploring but well worth it. Do lots of research before going so you get an idea of what to see. Sty at the Recapture lodge and they could help you.

Kind of hard to find, but worth the trip. On the way to a town called Mexican Hat, named after a rock that looks like an upside-down mexican hat atop a huge rock formation.
