The Bears Ears National Monument- named for a distinctive pair of towering buttes that resemble the ears of a bear- is a beautiful rugged landscape that stretches for miles in southeast Utah. It covers a wide expanse of juniper forests, red rock canyons, mesas and a variety of interestingly-shaped rock formations. But most importantly, this stretch of land is home to countless historical archaeological sites and artifacts that are sacred to Native Americans and an integral part of their history.

Other than these awesome cultural sites, Bears Ears National Monument offers a great choice of recreational opportunities from hiking, canyoneering, rock climbing, scenic drives and many more. There’s something here for everyone and when they’re not giving guided tours, the guides at Moab Cliffs & Canyons can be found here honing their climbing and rappelling skills.
