For the best views hike the Simon Canyon Ruin Trail during prime fall foliage season. Don’t be fooled, though; this 1.8-mile out-and-back hike offers some great views year-round. Hikers who make their way to the Simon Canyon Ruin will not only get extraordinary views of the canyon and ruin, but they may also catch glimpses of birds of prey that circle the canyon in this area. The Simon Canyon Ruin Trail is located in the Simon Canyon Area of Critical Environmental Concern and is near Navajo Lake State Park.
