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

We attempted this 17 mile drive in late September. We came in on the south entrance. We found it a bit challenging for our rental vehicle (Hyundai Elantra). However, it was well worth the effort. The scenery was amazing but really didn't get spectacular until we were about 3-4 miles in. By the time we got to mile 10.2, we... More

This is a very beautiful destination, but should only be attempted with a 4 wheel drive. Without that it is too precarious..

The dirt road was well maintained. We had a high clearance vehicle but you don't need one for this road. Fill up with gasoline beforehand - wouldn't want to run out of gas in this very remote location. Scenery is not as majestic as Monument Valley but is a great addition if you've already seen the Valley. It is just... More

We are fortunate to own dual sport motorcycles, so riding through The Valley of the Gods was a delight. It is easy to see why the ancients saw these formations as Gods. If you are in a back country (4 wheel drive) or on dirt bikes this 17 miles of dirt is well worth your time. We actually saw a... More
