Alegedly Montezuma's treasure was buried here in an Indiana Jones fashion. Townspeople from Kanab, Utah combed this area in the early 1900's searching for treasure. They found secret chambers, multi levels but little of any value. The Geology is interesting as well as the caves. You can hike from the road or HC 4wd is necessary. It is very sandy access.
