The False Kiva is named for the round stone circle structure and It's a category II archaeological site not marked on any maps or guides for a good reason. The trail is treacherous and potentially dangerous, leading along the edge of a very steep drop of several hundred feet. Some parts of the trail require climbing and during wet weather can be outright dangerous. False Kiva is located in the “Islands of the Sky” part of Canyonlands National Park, Utah. The remoteness and relatively unfamiliar location mean there is a good chance you will not encounter a soul on your hike and that you will most likely have this unique and astonishing site all to yourself.
One can only imagine the thousands of times individuals through the ages saw the same view of the Milky Way parade across the heavens.
