This is by far one of the most beautiful places I have ever gone to. It is not a place to drive a car. A low clearance vehicle is not a good idea. We did use a ford focus rental but had to go very slow in order to not hurt the car. This being the case going slow is... More

Valley of the gods is a surprising place. Simpple a dirt road that offers several milesd'un fascinating spectacle that approximates Monument valley. We hardly meet this rout car and it seems that the valley is yours. Huge rocks, immense red mesa and a prodigious calm. This valley deserves to be visited.

Very nice surroundings, we only passed 2 cars (May). Very well doable even in a Camero. Monument Valley is busy, this is as beautiful and free as well.

We entered from highway 261. Our exit on highway 163. The exit was 4 foot wide creek with some water in it. We did not have a SUV. If we had entered here we would have not gone. Thus drive is 1 1/2 long. Large rocks. wilderness and cattle. Met few cars or people. If we had more time would... More

We loved our ride through the Valley of the Gods. Even more amazing is that we had the place to ourselves! Yes! This fantastic place was empty on the day after Christmas. We took our time driving slowly and taking photos. We looked all around at the amazing scenery and couldn't believe what was surrounding us. We almost missed the... More

We stayed in nearby Bluff and headed out in the morning towards Monument Valley with the intention of going via Valley of the Gods. The turn is not hard to find if expecting it, and the one way trip took about 2 hours but we were in and out of the car taking photos and taking it in. We drove... More

Bizarrely at a Local Tourist Info Office on the way from Four Corners on Hwy 163, 162 and 41(I am deliberately not being more specific), we were told it was unsafe to visit - " ...a dangerous, very difficult drive for which, in these weather conditions with the floods and everything, we would need special tyres, deflated pressures, and to...

Been there on the 7th of October with a colleague It was a sunny day and the spot we found was very dry, interesting with few rattlesnakes around and is situated near Monument Valley and Mexican Hat. It is very isolated and no facilities and gas stations mile around! This place gives you loads of isolated buttes, towering pinnacles and... More

This wonder of the world is easily missed. There are no tourist signs, billboards, power lines, tourists, just a timber sign on the road to Monument Valley, on a dirt side road. It is like driving through the Grand Canyon! Unbelievable.

If you have the time and it's not rainy season or flooding time, take this 17 mile gravel loop. Unlike Monument Valley where you'd be foolish to use your own car, this road is by and large groomed and more than passable in a regular sedan. Very up close and personal view of mini-monuments but just as interesting as MV.
