Box Canyon and Lomaki ruins are a short 15-minute walk from here, along the edges of ancient earthcracks. The 1/4-mile trail will take you back in time over 800 years to the remnants of this once-thriving community. You will see the few native plants that grow in this high-desert environment; how the eruptions of Sunset Crater Volcano affected the ancient inhabitants; and the plaza where daily activities such as cooking and grinding corn took place.

The whole picture of this prehistoric community can only be completed with your assistance. Please leave the pottery sherds and other artifacts where they are found. These are invaluable to archeologists who continue to study the ruins. Stay on the marked trail to help preserve and protect this landscape and the ancient ruins for the enjoyment and education of future generations.,
