Using GPS to find your way to Hovenweep is not recommended. Since Hovenweep has 6 different units with numerous paved and dirt roads intesecting each other, GPS will send visitors to unknown locations other than to the park. Using a map is recommended.

Most of the structures at Hovenweep were built from A.D. 1230 to 1275, about the same time as the cliff dwellings at Mesa Verde National Park. Growth rings on a wooden beam in Hovenweep Castle show the log was cut in A.D. 1277, one of the latest dates in the region.
