Aztec Butte

Aztec Butte Professional Review and Guide

"Before 1300 A.D. there were many Anasazi Indians living within the boundaries of Canyonlands National Park. They generally lived in the canyons below the mesas where water was more abundant-particularly along the Green River.

But they also made frequent trips to the mesa tops for the purpose of gathering food, and there is still a great deal of evidence of their habitation on the Island in the Sky Mesa. The best place to see the remnants of these prehistoric people is on Aztec Butte, where the Anasazis built a number of granaries for storing the food they collected. Trail: Easy trail with some climbing."
