  • This was a nice paved trail. It is off the main mesa. The trail is in a loop which was nice to keep the pedestrian traffic flowing. I would have liked more one on one time with the Park Ranger, they are very insightful. I have so many questions about these dwellings and the inhabitants.
  • Suggest doing this either early morning or late afternoon where it will be cool temperatures. Entire area very hot during the day. Ranger at the Step House was very friendly and told us some history. One of the park pamphlets also guided us through a tour of the house, which was pretty neat. Suggest doing the loop counterclockwise as the trail makes it easier to come up from the left side.
