Discover the architectural remains of ancient inhabitants.

At Hovenweep National Monument, you can get an up-close look at structures made between 1200 AD and 1300 AD by the ancestral Pueblan people. You can participate in many outdoor activities, including hiking, camping, and stargazing. There are also star programs held during certain parts of the year and a junior ranger program for kids.  

Among the various trails at Hovenweep, a popular trail is called the Rim Trail Loop. There, you will see Hovenweep Castle, Square Tower, Rim Rock House, and the Twin Towers. The Rim Trail Loop is only a 2-mile hike and allows you to bring pets along with you. There are also several other hikes if you want to see even more ruins. Camping is available on a first-come-first-served basis. There are 31 different campsites open year-round and only cost $10 per night. Hovenweep National Monument is also an International Dark Sky Park, meaning you can expect to see a stunning view of the stars every night. Being part of a star program during your visit is worth looking into. 

If you have kids, don’t miss out on the junior ranger program. They have a booklet filled with information and kid-friendly activities at the visitor center. When they’re done filling out the booklet, all you have to do is bring it back so they can receive a ranger badge. The program offers an interactive way for kids to understand the history of the area. Hovenweep National monument is one of the less popular national monuments, but it is one that you won't want to miss.
