We followed the directions posted on this site by Joe. However, we approached by sliding under the fence just north of the parking area, then trecking straight up with our sites on the south side of the Mesa. Good Grip hiking shoes are recommended. The petroglyphs are on the large rock facing the ruins (South Side). As noted, there ins not an actual trail, a true Arizona Adventure awaits. We hiked in late October , so it was pleasant weather. It was obvious that these ruins are very "Seldome Seen" which made this hike extra special. We had packed a lunch and had a nice picnic at the ruins as well.
