Overview
Aspen Trail - Betatakin is a 0.93 mile round trip hike with 338 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 97 miles north of Winslow Arizona. May and September are the best months to enjoy this hike.


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.
