Description

Although this trail has nice views of Walnut Canyon and allows you to investigate the foundation of some old ruins, the Rim Trail does not allow you to investigate the amazing cliff dwellings that litter the side of the cliff below.

Enjoy two nice overlooks where you can spot dwellings in the distance and an excavated pueblo and pit house on the rim.
