A short walk around an extensive, well-preserved Sinagua Indian ruin in Wupatki National Monument. It is worthwhile spending time in the visitor center to learn about the Sinagua Indians who built Wupatki and many other structures in the area. The trail first passes an overlook with a good view of the ruin and its setting, then descends slightly to the ruin itself. The trail forms a loop around the hilltop, and there is a spur trail to an amphitheater.
