A Visit To This Ancient Utah Cave Will Take You Back In Time

We celebrate Utah’s pioneer history every July, but the history of people living here goes back much further than 1847. Long before the first white explorers set foot in the land that is now Utah, the Ancestral Puebloans lived and thrived here. Check out this cave that will take you back in time.

If you decide to visit Monarch Cave, please be respectful. Don’t remove anything from the area, and take precautions not to damage these fragile ruins so that those who come along after you can also see and enjoy them.
