Author Full Detail Guide
This trail drops about 300 feet from the top of Betatakin Canyon revealing views to the surprising aspen and fir forest below. There are no views of the ruins from this trail. The trail ends at a lookout point where the original trail that once continued further down into the canyon has been permanently closed due to a rock slide.

Check out the Official Route.
