Overview

Moon House is a remote undeveloped ruin in McLoyd Canyon southeast of the Kane Gulch Ranger Station. Public access is limited to 20 people per day via a permit system for day visits. During the spring and fall high use seasons permits are available only at the Kane Gulch Ranger Station.

From a scientific perspective, Moon House ruin is world renowned, unique to the region, and is a significant cultural treasure. Restrictions and management prescriptions are intended to minimize conflict between recreational use and cultural resources.

Short Hike: It is accessed by a strenuous three-mile hike and is not for those who fear heights.

Permits are required to visit this ruin. To obtain them, please see the Cedar Mesa Permits page.
