Description

For those who are very short on time or unable to complete longer outings, this near-roadside ruin is worth a quick stop. The lollipop shaped walkway is flat, wide, and easy to navigate. A large info board explains the ruins and some history. There is a round, covered kiva-like structure, a "tower," and some old walls to look at. Retrace your steps back to the parking area.
