We had 8 hikers total. The hike turned out to be a lot longer than it had to be. Total distance was 11.1 miles and 1083 feet of climbing. I assume this was because of all the back tracking we did plus just walking around the ruin sites,. The dirt road in was in far batter condition than the last time I was here so we could have made the hike shorter. The second pueblo complex has more artifact scatter of any other pueblo I have ever seen. Quite impressive. I want to thank everyone for coming and ask that you keep the location close and not share it in online forums.

I will be going back before Summer and intend to park much closer so that we can spend more time hiking ruin and not on the road.
