“Explore this ancient Anasazi village”

Mule Canyon Ruin is a small Anasazi village, used for living quarters and religious ceremonies. The masonry structures now visible were constructed of sandstone blocks set in wet soil mortar. The construction materials were obtained from the immediate vicinity of the site. During occupation, the walls of the structures (except, the kiva) were higher, and all were roofed. The roofs consisted of a log frame, covered with progressively smaller limbs and sticks, then sealed with soil mortar. The floors of all the structures consisted of hard-packed soil.

This was an easy 2 mile round trip hike through a creek bed. The turn off to this can be easily missed. Theres no signs. The turn off to the mule canyon trailhead is just before the mule canyon ruins on the north side of the road. There’s a fee area shortly after you drive down the dirt road. It’s $5/vehicle. Drive another .25 miles and park along the dirt road. Down to the left (in the creek bed) is a sign-in station. From here the ruins are one mile (one way) along the creek bed. It’s a great hike for kids.
