Hovenweep National Monument protects six prehistoric, Puebloan-era villages spread over a twenty-mile expanse of mesa tops and canyons along the Utah-Colorado border. Multi-storied towers perched on canyon rims and balanced on boulders lead visitors to marvel at the skill and motivation of their builders.
We recommend stopping at Hovenweep Visitor Center at Square Tower Group before going to other outlying areas. Follow signs to the visitor center. Roads may become impassible following incliment weather. Do not use GPS to find your way. There are numerous paved and dirt roads intersecting each other in this remote corner of Utah. GPS units may lead you astray.
