I went to visit my friend Jonathon in Monticello, Utah and asked if he had any recommendations for hikes. He mentioned Moon House Ruins, which I had never heard of before, but the sound of “ruins” is all I needed to commit. The drive to Moon House Ruins from Blanding is about 52 miles, but it took us about 2 hours and 22 minutes to get to the trail head. The first hour was good road and accounts for 42 of those miles.
The Bears Ears are visible from almost everywhere.
The remaining hour is on bad roads for the remaining 9 miles and change. A vehicle with high clearance is necessary once you leave the main highway.
A permit is required to visit the ruins. From the trailhead to the ruins is less than a mile.
