The Betatakin ruins built by the Hopi and Zuni Indians and now on Navajo land are not a long distance off Highway 160 in as it runs across the Utah/Arizona border. The Keet Seel ruins are a little farther off and require a free permit to visit. At the Betatakin site a parking lot and visitor center tell you about the region and native staff are helpful in answering questions. There is about a half mile paved trail that leads downhill to a site opposite and above the actual ruins. From there you may either use your cameras zoom feature to see the ruins or use the pay telescope. Also, there are tour hikes down the steep canyon and across to the ruins.
