Excursion D: Butler Wash Ruins/Mule Canyon Kiva – Bears Ears National Monument

(Limited to 30 participants) 


Butler Wash Ruin is a cliff dwelling that was built and  occupied by the Ancestral Puebloans, in about 1200 A.D.  Parts of the site have been stabilized and reconstructed,  but most of it remains as it was found in the 1800s. There  are habitation, storage and ceremonial structures,  including four kivas. This ruin is located in a side canyon of Butler Wash, on the east side of Comb Ridge. 

Hiking Information: A BLM trail to the site winds its way  across slickrock and washes to reach an overlook of  the cliff dwelling. Round trip hiking distance is 1 mile  and takes approximately a half hour. The difficulty is moderate. (source: BLM)
