Moonhouse Ruin Hike

Often depicted as the Motel 6 of the ancient civilization, this place has room for everyone to stay

Full Day Moonhouse Ruin hike

Moonhouse ruin is one site that has been strictly monitored for years. The reason, is it is a wonderful location. This site was a pivotal point in the creation of the Bears Ears Monument and this site lies within the boundaries of the monument helping to keep it a great location to visit and research. It's massive size has alluded to the thoughts that it was once used as a multi family dwelling, but more so that it was a stopping point for travellers passing through and used as a trade station as well as a spiritual retreat location. The depictions of the Moon inside one of the rooms gives it the name Moonhouse and alludes to a more celestial meaning and use of the structure.
