Aztec Butte Trail

Aztec Butte Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Easy hiking on a sandy trail leads to a scramble up the slickrock flank of Aztec Dome to several Native American ruins below the flat summit.

The mile-long Aztec Butte Trail climbs to the flat summit of 6,312-foot Aztec Butte, one of the highest points on the Island in the Sky in Canyonlands National Park. The trail offers easy hiking on a sandy trail and then scrambles up slickrock slabs to the flat summit. The hike highlights are great views and several ancient granaries used by Ancestral Puebloan people over 1,000 years ago."
