It's a long walk from the meet-up point to the long path down to Long House. This is a large and well preserved site. I've toured this site twice (2011 and 2017). It's a must see!

It takes two hours for this tour, which requires a good bit of walking and climbing, but it is so worth it. Spectacular site with such impressive construction. Everything is so well maintained in a respectful manner. Great guide with tons of information.

Ranger Carol gave us this tour and it was excellent. She's an archeologist by training and she was a fount of knowledge for this outing. I highly recommend you do this one early in the day.

This two mile hike/walk into the canyon was our favorite. There was lots of time to ask the Ranger questions, breathtaking view, and we even saw a collared lizard.
