This hike follows the streambed down into Rogers Trough, passing by and around all manner of trees and boulders. Toward the end, you can explore the 600 year-old cliff dwellings up the canyon slope, then Angel Basin itself, a meadow opening up where three canyons converge. This can be done as a long but undemanding day hike or as an easy overnight. The estimated hiking time includes exploring the ruins and riverbeds (and taking the uphill return). OUTSTANDING FEATURES: Riparian glades and woodlands, native American cliff dwellings, cool rock formations, caves, a wide meadow where trails and canyons converge.
