Short trip in 2012 looking for some ruins I heard rumor of from a fire crew. Only substantial one we found, supposed to be others hidden along the top in the Junipers. Pretty rough. Borders Rig Canyon.

We did a hike last year in the area of Woodenshoe canyon also in the area of Dark Canyon. We saw one ruin way up near the top of the canyon. Hiked up and around for a couple of hours and never could even get close to the ruin. Kind of amazing how the Anasazi managed to get to some of the dwellings. Of course some ledges may have fallen since then but still amazing.

Hi Bob,
I tried to find that ruin a few yrs ago. Do you have any UTMs? Any help would be appreciated.
