The ruin is very small, compared to other sites. OK for a short and easy walk. Trail is easy to follow.

This is a short walk to a a small 1000 year old Indian granary. This is a well maintained trail, however, I don't remember if it is wheelchair accessible ~ I believe that it was.

This is a super easy and very short trail that takes you to a very old ruin. The ruin is in pretty good shape and is easy to see. There is parking/turn out that you can use. It's fun to imagine a life like theirs.

This is a short and easy walk to view some of the early history of Canyonlands. Take advantage of the $0.50 trail guide which will give you information on the various plants and features along the way.
