Large scenic butte Indian ruin site located within the Tonto National Forest bordering the western San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation boundary. The site consists of about 13 rooms perched atop a large rugged cliff lined butte. Reaching the ruins requires negotiating a short easy scramble route on the northeast edge (see posted GPS route). A great destination for those with a love for ancient Indian history and off-trail adventure. The hike is an easy off-trail rolling ridge top route with light to moderate bushwhack at times.
