  • We at random on it came, as we most are passed at the Brown tourist attraction sign. After some back and forth we have decided for the trip without knowing what awaits us. The detour is worthwhile in any case! You can see something not all days. Also it was not crowded at all. On the contrary! Just find the way is worth. You can see many parked pick ups, owned by looking for PIN information.

  • Very impressive location to see cliff dwellings in good conditions. After a short walk on a well prepared trail you will have an amazing view over the canyon to the cliff dwellings on the other side. I recommend to bring your own binoculars to the view point. On longer hikes you can reach the cliff dwellings. It might be very hot there. Take enough water with you on your trails.
  • Free camping in the Sunset View or Canyon View campgrounds, not crowded and great road to get there. Night sky was amazing, no light pollution from any nearby cities. Beautiful walkway through unusual topography to a viewing platform to see the ruins... up-close tours are available.
  • Stopped on our way to Durango. Nice views and interesting area. Visitor center was nice. Had a picnic lunch while there. A little out of the way, but we thought it was worth the visit.
  • This place is stunningly beautiful. Individual campsites suited for very large rigs to Van camping. Restrooms, potable water, and other amenities. Free camping for 7 days.
  • Another beautiful canyon. Only takes you to an overhang to see the ruins, but still very pretty and interesting.
