Target Ruin & Ballroom Cave

A short, shady hike to great ruins and a scramble into a deep cave.


Wow factor


Overall rating




Access road


You hike northwest from a pullout on UT95 into shallow, tree-lined Upper Butler Wash. There are at least 4 ruin sites here, some in deep caves. Please don't disturb the bats.


Target Ruin (with its target pictograph) is an out-of-reach structure, accessed on a steep but short trail leading west off the wash. It's difficult to see the rock art.
