"Much like the main fork of Mule Canyon, the North Fork blends conifer forest and pinyon-juniper woodland with bold slickrock cliffs, providing easy access to a number of fine Anasazi ruins. This fork of the canyon is more confined, and many of its ruins—including dwellings, kivas, and granaries—are better hidden than in the main fork of the canyon, making their discovery more rewarding. Walking in the North Fork is easy and trouble-free. Segments of sandy, boot-worn trail guide you upcanyon, and in between you simply follow the wash.
You will follow segments of trail, but most often you will be walking along the floor of the wash, with slickrock underfoot, occasionally skirting boulders and plunging through willow thickets, forging your own way."
