We drove up to the small visitor's center, which had a multitude of hummingbirds buzzing about! We waited for the next group tour to start while we chatted with the volunteers that staff the place. For $6 each we had a guided group tour that was very educational, interesting, and the views were awesome.
Our guide was quite knowledgeable, and the hike began on a concrete pathway with handrails. That was the first segment. The next segment though, was pretty steep, and it involved some scrambling over rocks. This was narrow and a little scary in places. It was a hike not for young children or anyone with breathing/heart problems, although the ranger center where you start is interesting enough for those not able to make the climb. I'm afraid of open heights, so it was a struggle for me in particular. I'm glad I went, though, because the views from the fire tower, plus the ancestral pueblo ruins, were worth the trip.
