Canyonlands National Park: Fort Bottom Professional Review and Guide
"This interesting hike has two destinations. You can hike down to the bottomland where an old ranch building sits (a 4-mile round-trip), or you can climb up to the top of a small butte (3 miles out-and-back) to check out an intriguing structure built by Ancestral Puebloans.The first part of the trail is a recently abandoned road, so it’s very easy walking. About a mile from the trailhead, you go over a little divide made out of bentonite clay and then around the north side of the butte. Once on the other side, you can take a short side trip by taking a left at a junction you’ll find there and climb up to the ruin (which you could see on the way down)."
