This is a great introductory to Cedar Mesa and the hiking opportunities in the region. Hike to House of Fire Ruins and learn about the Anasazi Culture from our experienced guides. Hike is ~3 miles round trip. Morning departure recommended for photographers wanting to capture the House of Fire in its best lighting. After our hike we’ll drive a short 4x4 road to the Cave Towers overlooking Mule Canyon. Ideal for families or those with limited time.
Meet 15 minutes before your departure time and your guide will answer any questions about the day. Trips leave at 9 am and again at 1 pm. Call for additional custom times if these do not fit your schedule. A 30 minute drive on the scenic Highway 191 through Comb Ridge and up Cedar Mesa we are at our trailhead. The trail is fairly flat with several short, but steep climbs as we follow the bottom of the canyon. Hiking sticks are nice to have, but your guide is always there with a helping hand if needed. Most people find this trail easy and we believe anyone can do it. 1.5 miles down the trail and we are at the House of Fire Ruin. The streaks on the rocks above the ruin give the impression it is on fire. Best time for photographing this phenomenon is roughly 10-11 am based on time of year. Afternoon trips can still get photos off the House of Fire, but it is not as good. After getting photos and learning about the history from your guides we hike back on the same trail back to the vehicle.
Shortly after getting back to the highway we’ll take you off the beaten path down a short 4x4 only trail to the Cave Tower Ruins. A short walk gets us on the rim of Mule Canyon which is a spectacular view! The Towers surround the top of the canyon at a spring here and looking down on the ruins you can imagine life here 1000 years ago. We could sit here all day, but we’ll need to get you back to civilization and on your way. Tour lasts 3-4 hours and varies on groups hiking speed.
