Car camp Comb Ridge North end

A 3 or 4 day outing to the north end of Comb Ridge, day hiking from a car/tent camp at a scenic overlook near the Comb Ridge Dugway. Unhurried mornings in camp, long sunsets looking past Bears Ears.
Our first day is a half-day drive to get there, with a short hike to stretch our legs. The second day we hike along the rim of the Comb, looking down 750 ft on the north end of Comb Wash, opposite numerous side canyons. The third day we hike a 200 ft. knob on the rim overlooking Arch Canyon, then traverse into the north end of Butler Wash looking for pools, ending at a hidden Anasazi ruin near camp. Depart if you wish after this full days hike. The fourth day we will explore near where Highway 95 cuts through the Comb, heading home mid-afternoon.
