Description

This short trail up the rocky slope leads you to Perfect Kiva, an ancient Anasazi ceremonial site that has been well preserved by the Bureau of Land Management stabilization efforts. You'll find several structures as well as petroglyphs on the wall. The Kiva is located in a deep shady alcove that provides a spectacular view into the surrounding amphitheater.
