This experience offers an up close and personal view of pueblos that tribes lived in about 700 years ago. We missed the outside sign to the easy "rim trail" as it was not clearly marked. When we paid our admission we were told that "the trail" was right through the doors. Since we were in the area for a few days and I had been nursing a bad knee, we thought we would just do the easy trail to check out the place, knowing that we could return and do the "island trail" if it didn't look too daunting. So, we headed out the door and began a steep descent into this amazing canyon. There were pueblo homes all around. Unbelievable. When we got down we saw a sign that said island trail on the right. So we took the trail to the left only to find out from a friendly guide that we were halfway around the island trail going backwards! It was o.k. By them and the guide was happy to inform and answer any questions. This trail takes you past and even into these homes. Thankfully my knee held out pretty well, and I have to say that it was worth it! We did do the easy one while we were still there, but missed the ruins again due to lack of signage. They do have it all laid out on a map, which we will pay more attention to next time. I guess we were too excited to check it out.
