“A hidden gem in Island in the Sky”
Review of False Kiva

False Kiva
Reviewed 2 April 2018

First, the trail is not on park maps, so it isn't marked, BUT that being said there is a well marked trail to the kiva. Even though this is a short hike you climb up and down a lot over ledges and rocks, so be prepared. The kiva sits high in an alcove and the the views from the site are unbelievably stunning.

Reading there were no map or markings on the trail to False Kiva, I was nervous hiking on this trail. But I was wrong. There are plenty of cairns along the route. I even added some to help other fellow hikers. I believed without the cairns, it will be very difficult to find it. It started as flat land and then big rocks and small rocks along the way. I recommended a hiking stick to help climbing up the rocks, water, and hat. There are not many shades on the hike. I did it late in October and it was still hot without much shade. Some area are steep, but it is doable. Just take it slow and rest along the way. In my opinion, you don't have to be fit but flexible as there are big rocks to climb on. Very beautiful and serene. There is a sacred area that was blocked off. Not sure if we allow to go in the rock circle, but there were plenty of shoe prints on the sand. I saw a family with 2 little kids make it there.
