    Blanding + Bluff suggestions

    Hi;

    Will be in Blanding & Bluff area on Sunday & Monday.
    My wife really wants to see 16 room ruin (17 room ruin).
    I've found directions to this.

    Couple questions ....
    - any other ruins right in that area (near 16 room ruin)?
    - will I need 4 wheel drive? (from what I've read, it looks like i don't)

    Also looking for other awesome ruins suggestions to see in the Blanding/Bluff area.

    thanks,
    Keith

    I really like Butler Wash/Comb Ridge, I'd start there.
    Lots to see, many shortish hikes.

    Thanks for all the info!! You need a lifetime to see it all.

    Couple thoughts and please comment on this itinerary ....

    Day 1- Going to 17 (16?) Room Ruin (191 via County Road 438)
    Then, doing the 20 mile Lower Butler Wash Rd
    Can an economy rental car make this road?

    Day 2 - Hiking South Fork Mule Canyon or Kane Gulch to Jnx w/ Grand Gulch
    I'd like to see House on Fire, but I hear Turkey Pen is cool too.
    Any thoughts on either?


    thanks!

    Hahaha... rental cars can go places Jeeps fear to tread.

    You should be good to go unless it rains.
