Butler Wash runs along the eastern side of Comb Ridge. Comb Ridge is a steep monocline running 80 miles in a north/south direction from Kayenta, Arizona, to the foothills of the Abajo Mountains. The sawtooth ridgeline is one of southeastern Utah's most prominent geological features. Ancient ruins and rock art litter the entire length of Comb Ridge. Butler Wash runs between Highways 191 and 95. On the north end of the graded sandy trail are fossilized dinosaur footprints. Numerous pullouts along the trail double as campsites and hiking trailheads to ancient rock art and cliff dwellings. The eastern side of Comb Ridge slopes upward, thus creating the most accessible routes to the historic sites. Bears Ears National Monument now charges for various activities in the area.
