Long Logs Loop and Agate House Trail
Petrified Forest National Park - Painted Desert
The Long Logs Trail circles one of the greatest concentrations of in-tact petrified logs in the Park. Trees over 100' long were stripped of their branches by ancient rivers and eventually came together within this vicinity. The Agate House was built between 1050 and 1300 A.D., possibly by transient farmers or traders as a temporary home. Distinguishing this dwelling's remains from others in the region is its uncommon construction materials - petrified wood sealed with mud mortar. Both trails lead from the same trailhead.
