Long hike up and down over rolling hills till you reach the bottom of the mesa. Then a strenuous climb up some switch backs to the top of the mesa. Navigating to the ruin is fairly easy, just head straight to the North till you cant go any further. The ruins are very hard to see until you are practically right on them because they are not very high and many of the walls have toppled. The highest wall was no more than waist high. I was expecting larger ruins an was left a bit disappointed at first. The impressive part is the amount of rooms. If you can imagine what they may have looked like when all intact the size must have been impressive and housed many people. Also if your into pottery shards this is the perfect hike for you. The ground is literally covered with pieces of pottery. Remember please don't take anything from these ancient sites, take lots of pictures but leave them for fellow hikers to enjoy.
