Mule Canyon Roadside Ruin Travel Guide.

Mule Canyon Roadside Ruin

Mule Canyon Roadside Ruin is an open Anasazi habitation site consisting of both above-ground and below-ground dwellings. This site was initially occupied briefly about 750 AD, reaching its peak between 1000 and 1150 AD.  Pueblo ruins consists of 12 rooms, a reconstructed Kiva, and remains of a tower.

·        Location is 44.8 miles from Monticello; take Hwy 191 south into and through Blanding, 24.6 miles, until the junction of State Hwy. 95, make a right onto Hwy. 95 and travel 20.3 miles.  There will be a sign indicating the turn off into the parking area.

·         Round trip walking distance is ¼ mile along a concrete walkway; approximate visitation is 30 minutes.  Informational boards are at the Kiva site.

·         Difficulty: Easy

·         Vault toilets, parking area; but no drinking water available.

·         Admission: Free

·         Camping: Not Allowed

·         Pets: Allowed, owners are expected to clean up after pet (s).
 The concrete walkway, and short distance, makes this ruin site very accessible to those with walking disabilities or are wheelchair bound.
