BUTLER WASH FULL DAY

ITINERARY

Meet at the Wild Rivers Expeditions at 8:45 am.  You can fill you water bottles and your guide will answer any questions about the day. Call for custom times if these do not fit your schedule.  We’ll load up and 5 minutes out of town we are on the Butler Wash Road.  Our first stop is the Wolfman Panel.  This is a short rocky trail to a very unique panel different from most panels in the region.  We’ll take some photos and learn about different styles of rock art.  Trip is only ~2 miles of walking.

 

Once we are back to the vehicle we’ll head further up the Butler Wash Road to Monarch Cave.  We’ll take it easy hiking along the bottom of a shady canyon.  This trail is mostly flat walking, but there are several short rocky and steep climbs.  We believe everyone can do it and your guide will lend a hand to anyone in need.  Hiking sticks are a good idea unless you’re a mountain goat.  The trail ends at a large ruin site called Monarch Cave.  Before hiking near the ruins your guide will talk about respecting the site and leaving all artifacts where they lay.  We’ll get to see pictographs, artifacts and dwelling walls still standing since roughly 700 A.D.  This is an outdoor museum and your guide will be teach as much as you want to hear about this ancient civilization.  We’ll then hike back the same trail and have lunch near the vehicle under some cottonwoods.

 

The afternoon we will spend hiking to more nearby ruins, such as Double Stack ruin, Processional Panel, Target ruin and more.  The trails are all fairly similar and your guide will make decisions to fit in the most sites as possible for the group’s ability and enjoyment level.  We recommend this tour for those that want to see many different sites in one day.  If you have specific sites in mind you wish to see please let us know when booking.
