Oddly-shaped stone towers created by the master builders of the Anasazi’s people, the meaning of which are still unknown. The Monument also has a total of six groups of ruins and is known for its square, oval, and D-shaped towers. Explore the Square Tower Group walking the two mile loop trail from the Visitor Center. Stargazing is a wonderful way to immerse yourself in this peaceful and moving setting. Make a night of it with camping which is open year-round on a first-come, first-served basis.

To reach it from the west, head east on UT-262 (off of US-191), and take the turnoff towards Hatch Trading Post. The monument is 16 miles further on this dirt road after the trading post. To reach it from the east, head west on dirt Country Road 10 from Colorado.
