Escalante Ruin

The Escalante Ruin was first investigated in 1776 by the Dominguez-Escalante Expedition looking for a northern route from the New Mexico missions to the ones at Monterey, California.

The ruin consists of a partially excavated multi-storied masonry pueblo with at least 20 rooms and a kiva. Located on the grounds of the Anasazi Heritage Center, a one-half mile long, paved, uphill, wheelchair-accessible trail provides an excellent view of the pueblo. Signs along the trail illuminate history and the local environment.
