    An exceptional canyon rich in history with plenty of ancient sites of the Anasazi people. Easy trail to follow through high sandstone walls. Wonderful area to camp. Plenty of water at the time of our hike. Hiked Mule Canyon(Hike 1)North to the end of the trail. Looked for route to the East to cross over, so we could hike back out Mule Canyon (Hike 2). This was more like canyoneering and would not recommend it unless you are in good physical condition. Plenty of views in both canyons. Although we were caught in Mule Canyon (Hike 2)during a heavy down pour, use common sense when crossing through deep water and there should be no problem. Easy trail on both canyons, but warn about crossing over from one side to the other!

    An excellent family day hike or for a real treat, spend the night in a canyon rich with history of the Anasazi. Amid the pine forests deep in the sandstone canyon are at least 7 sites of granaries, houses, and kivas of these ancient people. Some of these sites are easily reached while others are built high in the sandstone walls. Remains of artifacts such as pottery and bone tools have been set out for observation but please do not remove.
