This Hike Takes You To A Place Utah’s First Residents Left Behind

Ancestral Puebloans called Utah home for centuries before white settlers arrived in the Beehive State. Many archaeological sites are found at Cedar Mesa, in the four corners region. From the late BC centuries to about 1200 AD, this area was home to thousands of native people, and the ruins they left behind provides clues about their lives and culture. Here’s a short, easy hike to see views of the impressive Butler Wash Ruins.
