False Kiva is a Class II archaeological site in the Island in the Sky District of Canyonlands National Park. Class II archaeological sites are open for public but is not marked on the map. However, the park rangers will provide the information of the trail if you ask them specifically.
The parking is on Alcove Spring (38.423065, -109.908631). The parking spot is very limited. Also, this is a perfect spot for watching sunset. You should go there early to get a parking spot. After you parked, you will walk across the road and will see the trail to False Kiva trail head (38.421063, -109.908533).
My friends and I hiked in winter and it wasn't very easy. The snow covered all the trail, yes, ALL THE TRAIL. Wisanu marked spots on GPS to get us on the right way but still, it was not easy. We walked along the trail and looked for Cairns to give us direction.
It took use almost two hours to get to False Kiva but only an hour hiking back to our car. I also attach other hiking guide below. Let me know if yall have a chance to visit this site. It's BEAUTIFUL!
