Stop 12: Tsankawi contained approximately 275 ground-floor rooms built around a central plaza. In most areas, the dwellings would have been two stories tall. Please stay on the designated trail. In recent years, social trails have become a conspicuous problem. People walking off the trails accelerate the deterioration of the walls and, in this arid environment, once created, social trails are extremely difficult to eliminate. It is also likely that following social trails will not take you where you want to go.
