View during the North rim drive or during your canyon tour. You will need your binoculars to get an up close look at the antelope illustrations on the walls. They are exceptional and must be seen to be appreciated. Don't miss this ruin.

Well restored petroglyphs on canyon wall are quite exciting as they are so clear. Only viewable from the canyon itself.

Antelope House Ruins overlook is one of the first stops along the North Rim drive. To get to the overlook, walk to the far end of the parking lot and follow the rock lined trail to the lookout point. The vantage point from the top of the cliff is a awesome as the full canyon is layed out below you.... More

The Puebloan ruins are a good stop on a Canyon del Muerto tour. You should be aware that the paintings of antelopes and other faux pictographs are not ancient and were done by moderns. Some refreshments are available at this location.

Very close to the road, easy to walk to lookout. Bring binoculars or telescope to see the formations and ruins up close. Beautiful scenery.

Coming this far west we had to take the tour definitely glad we did it. Once-in-a-lifetime experience. It's amazing how people lived back then and still do today.

Take a Jeep tour here so you can really appreciate the site and enjoy the canyon at its base, too. The tours require a Navajo guide and are about 3 hours long.

Don't skimp on this overlook. Walk the entire pathway and you will get an awesome view of the paintings and the ruins. There are usually quite a few sellers here with very high quality merchandise.

Most folks are familiar with the ruins of Mesa Verde but have never heard of Canyon de Chelly much less understand the beauty of the ruins on view in this magnificent National Monument. Antelope House Ruin may be my favorite of all the vistas in this area, not only for the ruins but the beautiful geography of the surrounding canyon.

Again, the ruins are fenced off, but they are fairly extensive and you can walk along the fence to get good photos. Be sure to note the paintings above the ruins on the cliff...both old stuff, Anazasi, and fairly new Navajo painted Antelope running along the cliff. 2 government toilets here, and Navajo jewelry sellers. Normal turn-around point for half... More
