Fodor's Review

The best place in southeast Utah to see ancient tower ruins dotting the scenic cliffs, if you're headed south from Canyonlands and have an interest in ancestral Puebloan culture, a visit to this monument is a must. Park rangers strongly advise following printed maps and signs from U.S. 191 near Blanding, Utah, or County Road G from Cortez, Colorado. GPS is not reliable here. Once you get there, you'll find unusual tower structures (which may have been used for astronomical

observation) and ancient dwellings.
