Too many people, and pretty soon, the magic is lost. This is a roundtrip loop through amazing Red Rock formations on a primitive road. I've camped off to the side a couple of times, that's fun. There's a B&B at one end too, by the Moki Dugway, but I've never stayed there. It's a "mini Monument Valley" and as noted,... More

This is a 17 mile wiggly dirt road with many different rock formations. It is situated not far from Monument Valley, just to the North. It was a hot day when we went. There are many named rock features including Battleship and lady in the Tub. It is well worth the detour and the bumps. It is great for photography.... More

This place was one of the best camping spots! Not for the average camper though due to winds, hot weather during the day and no actual campsites. No campfires allowed but our camp stove worked great for what we needed. I love this spot and will be back!

Such an incredible road! It is about 17 miles of gravel/dirt road with some dips, hills, turns etc. We did it in a Subaru Legacy which just added to the fun. I think we only say 6 other cars the whole time we were out there. It feels like you are in an old Western! The scenery is spectacular!

A short distance from our hotel in Mexican Hat and east to get to. A very good dirt road takes you on about a 17 mile trip through the most beautiful scenery. If it's dry you don't need an SUV. Indeed the road is far superior to that of Monument Valley. As said the scenery is beautiful. Wonderful rock formations... More

I have seen seen family cars on the road but i recommend a high clearance vehicle. The sights are spectacular as other reviewers have said so i will not repeat the obvious. I will say a few words of caution. If you encounter a "dry gulch" that is muddy beware because you can get stuck easily. When you encounter a... More

Just you and nature on a dirt road yet close to major highways. Had fun with my SUV. Saw only two other cars.

Having driven from the north down the US-261 Moki Dugway, the Valley of the Gods road was immediately at the bottom but not signposted so we missed it the first time and had to turn round. The road round is 16 miles of unpaved dirt track which is very bumpy and you can only drive about 5 mph. The scenery... More
