We were able to view this ruin and found it to be very well preserved. Highly recommended for those who are interested in ancient ruins.

A short walk over rock formations, gorgeous views and then there they are..actual ancient cliff dwellings. its so much easier to picture the ancient ones lives after seeing the dwellings and their surroundings.

The road was very sandy and could cause a car to get stuck. I would not recommend without an SUV or 4x4. The directions are difficult to follow and the neighbors do not like visitors. I will not give directions because I would hate to...More
