Coon Creek Ruins Overlook via FR3368 is a 0.04 mile round trip walk/tour with 10 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 55 miles east-northeast of Mesa Arizona. March and November are the best months to enjoy this activity. This hike involes off trail navigation. Review triplogs, photos and the route to understand the terrain before heading out.
While in the FR203A Sierra Ancha area of the Bull Canyon TH to hike other trail and off-trail options, this spur road drive and very short ~30 yards walk one way from the FR3368 road end "Cliff Overlook" to view the scenic and ancient Coon Creek Cliff Dwelling Ruins Site is a worthy addition to your planned day.
Note: best viewed in the mid morning hours due to sun location across Coon Creek Canyon.
