We found this place accidentally and I was delighted by the amazing red rock formations. This is a must see! I will not forget this area and am planning a return trip this year.

We stayed in Mexican Hat for three days visiting different attractions around the area. We took a side trip through the Valley of the Gods because we heard it was very similar to Monument Valley which we had already been to. From Mexican Hat, you take 261 towards the Goosenecks State Park and the Muki Dugway. Turn right onto the... More

I own a small SUV and I managed to make it around the trail. The trail is dirt roads that, in places, have very large ruts from water drainage. My mechanic reported he couldn't believe how badly my alignment had been off. That being said, the view was pretty and there were some pretty fantastic sights. Just go slow!!!!

This drive is incredible. 99% of the road is very well maintained, just washed out in a couple of spots, so go SLOW. the views are absolutely unbelievable. dont miss this one. plan at least 90 minutes for the drive.

We decided to detour through the Valley of the Gods - what an experience!! The rock formations are absolutely stunning and we absolutely enjoyed the drive. Some recommendations - take a picture of the map at the entrance. The road is easy enough to follow, but it gives you a rough guide as to what the names of the rock... More

We did this drive in a 4WD Highlander and it was a great experience. We drove in after some heavy rains earlier in the day and found spectacular vistas as the sun was setting. Just incredible. The road would be totally fine in dry conditions - there were a few washes with running water that a 2WD drive vehicle would... More

Valley of the gods is a smaller,uncrowded version of Monument Valley. Not only does it have a lot of buttes and rock formations it also has no crowds to spoil your time in the valley. You can park and walk the desert floor for hours at a time in total quiet so you can enjoy the sounds of the desert.... More

Once you've gone to the tribal park, do take a trip to Valley of the Gods - it is amazing! Less people, no traffic, and beautiful scenery..at no charge! Take the trip up Moki dugway and all the way up to Muley Point and your jaw will drop! There is only one house that we saw on the whole trip... More
