I am floating from Sand Island to Mexican Hat with my kids. Has anyone ever done a side hike up the comb ridge where it connects to the river? We want to see more ruins than just those obvious ones marked on the river map.

Did it last week.

And probably a half-dozen times before. Not much in the way of artifacts there outside of the old Emigrant Road. There is absolutely a ton of stuff on Comb the other side of the road worth looking at.

Should point out that at less than a 1000 CFS, the Comb Ridge campsite is inaccessible from the river. It's filled in a lot the last 2-3 years plus it seems to have an increase in ATV/OVR usage although it's always been visited via the wash. If hiking the wash or ridge, it's usually the best access point.

Have quite a bit of upper canyon information at my web site from previous trips, but this TR might be in line with what you are looking to do:
