Visit Monument Valley
Monument Valley is located on the Arizona-Utah state line, near the Four Corners area and has been the setting for more Western movies than any other site in the United States. The Valley features crimson mesas and surreal sandstone towers that reach heights of 1,000 feet and is one of the most photographed places on earth. Visitors may pay an access fee and drive the 2-3 hour trip through the park on a 17-mile dirt road. Parts of Monument Valley are accessible only by guided jeep tours, such as Mystery Valley and Hunts Mesa.
Hike the Wildcat Trail
The Wildcat Trail is the only hiking trail inside the Tribal Park that visitors can hike unescorted. Horseback rides are also available from various establishments both inside the park and in the general Monument Valley area, and rates vary widely depending on the length of the ride. Additionally, hot air balloon flights are available May 1 through October 31. Monument Valley is part of the Navajo Nation Reservation and is accessible from U.S. Highway 163.
