House on Fire Ruin Trail: Bureau of Land Management Professional Review and Guide
"This pleasant, easy day hike follows the course of upper Mule Canyon, one of the most accessible canyons in the Cedar Mesa region. The 2-mile out-and-back hike travels past great bulging cliffs of Cedar Mesa sandstone that embrace the canyon, which supports an interesting mixture of pinyon-juniper and montane forest environments.The trail in Mule Canyon is sandy but well worn and easy to follow, with few obstacles, making it passable even to novice hikers. You will see several well-preserved Anasazi ruins should you continue to hike farther into the canyon, most of them grain storage structures. The description for this hike leads directly to some of the ruins that are a very popular site for photography—please respect these fragile ancient structures."
