Half Day monarch cave hiking exploration hike

This spectacular hike into some mildly great preserved ruins located within the Bears Ears National Monument. This monument was designated to showcase these amazing sites and protect the ruins from further becoming damaged. By taking guide led trips, we are able to discuss the amazing surroundings, sites, locations and explain how protection of these ancient locations can continue as they have done so for thousands of years. Taking only 3-4 hours this hike is a good break for a day where not a lot of energy use is desired. While there are a few steep sections in the hike, it is great for families and those looking to spend a few hours seeing some off the path locations.
