Brief Directions

This site is not easy to find on a map...from 491 outside of Cortez, take County Road BB and travel 6 miles to County Road 10. Turn south and go 11.3 miles. Turn left onto a rocky, dirt road for about one mile, and park. The rest of the trail is for hiking. Follow the trail marked with hand prints to the ruins in this area.

Notes

Canyons of the Ancients BLM has numerous ancestral Puebloan ruins scattered through southwestern Utah, southeastern Colorado. Please, be careful, bring water, and leave no mark.

Description

Part of the Canyons of the Ancients historical park in Southwest Colorado, the Painted Hand Pueblo is a remote, yet great example of ancestral Puebloan life before 1100 AD.
